Administrator can't save picture

Hello,

I am the administrator (and only user) on my new Windows 7 laptop, so I have moved my library folders (picture, music and documents) from smaller c: partition to large D: partition, I have moved all my pictures from my backup USB drive to my library, then I installed Canon DPP editing software (similar to photoshop), now the funny part starts, when I edit a picture and trying to save the new edited picture to the same folder where the original picture resides (My Pictures/Vacation) im getting a message that I'm not authorized to save it there and need to selet another location !!! WHY ? I'm the administrator...Can anyone shed some light on this ..

Thanks

Hello Johnnya, thanks for the quick reply, the instructions in suggested link are the ones i used to relocate the libraries and it worked fine, also when I click on my pictures folder in start menu it brings me to the correct folder on D: partition so there is no problem, the authorization to save new (or modified) pictures to the same folder is the issue..

FYI, you can't relocate a library. A library is just a way of organizing other folders...they are not folders themselves. I believe you are confusing terms.
