Moved My Pictures to new partition, now in both but 1 is empty?

I have partitioned my hard drive into 4 partitions. C, E for My Videos, X for My Documents, Z for My Pictures.
Each of the new partitions have the folders and all files I moved.

My C User folder still has a My Pictures folder (empty) and My Documents folder (shows same files as X drive) and there is no Video folder now (except on E)

I am so confused. I thought i did all 3 the same way. What is wrong? Understand i am not worried that the files are gone because i have them on 3 other hard drives.

This would be the correct procedure: User Folders - Change Default Location

Restore to default and try again, make sure you follow the tutorial. Accidents can happen.

There is no reason to go changing anything, you just store your vidoes, music, data etc on the appropriate partition.

If you download a movie, a document, a picture etc and it goes to your downloads folder, if you want to keep it, just copy and paste it to the appropriate partition.

When you wanna watch the video you watch it.

What i mostly concerned about is that all 22 gigs of My Documents are still in the C drive as well as the new partition

What are you concerned about ?

If you don`t want them on C, just delete them.

You should not be storing any data on C

I'm thinking you copied to new partition/drive instead of move to new partition/drive.
