I was messing around with trying to move the default location for my User Folders. I was following Brink's guide: User Folders - Change Default Location
. I had a secondary drive error (where the folders were to be relocated to), requiring a format. Prior to doing so, I changed all the folders back.
Now, my "Contacts" folder no longer has a "Location" tab in its properties, so I am unable to move it back. I went into regedit to the following location:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
and was able to find the "Contacts" folder. It was incorrectly named (some jumbled mess of what appeared to be random numbers and letters). I renamed it to "Contacts" and changed the Data to "%USERPROFILE%\Contacts".
After doing all this, the "Contacts" folder is displayed in My Computer and correctly pointing to C:Users\Me - but there is no location tab in its properties so I cannot move it again to a secondary drive.
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to restore the "Location" tab?
