How do I move document folder

Hello, I have a fresh install with two hard drives and would like to put my docs,pictures ect, on the other drive for storage.
I tried to move my music folder and really messed things up . I'm not quite sure what I did ,but the folder is empty and I get access denied.
That's not a problem because I will reinstall and start over, but can someone tell me how to move them from (c drive ) to (d drive ) ?
Thanks alot

Hello Timmy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This tutorial can help show you how to move your "C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents" folder to that location.

For you Music folder, you should be able to restore it's default location using Option Two in the tutorial below if you like. Afterwards, you can try moving it again.
