I've just built myself a shiny new PC, and I've gone and made a booboo straight off the bat
I was attempting to change the location of the My Music folder to my second HDD so that it wasn't taking up space on my smaller SSD. Instead of clicking 'move' in the location tab and creating a new folder, I accidentally selected the whole E drive. I also did this before creating a restore point (eeejit).
I can't change the folder's location now because it considers the whole drive as the music folder. When I search for shell:my music and then click on the folder (shown as the E drive), and then go to 'move' in the location tab and create a new folder to move it to, it tells me: Cannot redirect parent into descendant. The specified path is invalid.
I tried option 1 from this tutorial
posted on these forums to no avail. I'm considering option 2, but I'm wary of this because my entire drive (which is empty at the moment) is currently assigned as the shell folder.
Does anyone know if it's safe to try option 2, and whether it will work in this situation?
Thanks in advance
OK, I tried option 2 and it worked nicely. It has left me a with a folder called 'Music' rather than 'My Music' though. I know it's a minor niggle, but does anyone know how to rename this folder, because doing it through the folder properties doesn't work?
