Windows 7: Remaking "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders

Remaking "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

You have a backup from before the problem started? a win 7 dvd to do a repair install?

Hello Shane,

You could try restoring the default locations of the use folders that you messed up on, then try moving them again to see if that may fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

thank you both very much for the quick replies.

Brinks method of restoring the folders worked a treat and I then moved them again, but correctly haha.

Thanks once again
