Help, my new disk replaced my downloads folder?
So I bought 2TB HDD for week ago, didn't use it but thought I'd sort all folders today
Anyways, something is very messed up
Double disk locations
(neither of them shortcuts)
No download folder (shown in first pic)
Basically I were going to try store download stuff on my new larger disk (done before, worked), had an error this time and it didn't work. I still got the files left from the download folder, however the download folder is now just a "normal" folder left now, and is not registered as the actual download folder, as the special icon for the folder is gone, and when I download stuff it just stores in the main E (new disk) folder
Anyways, I think I understand what is going on, the E disk pretends to be the download disk, which explains both problems, however how do I solve this?

Follow the steps in User Folders - Change Default Location to move the default User folder.
You may need to first User Folders - Restore Default Location.
Note that you'll not be able to use Windows 7 backup imaging without it now deeming the new HD a System drive since it has a System folder on it. But you can get around this by using another imaging app, or instead just copying the Downloads folder there, rightclicking to add it to Library, setting it as the Default Download location for that folder.
That Ploxcake folder looks wrong. How did it get there? Is it your User account folder?
