Windows 7: Lost Download Folder WIN 7

Lost Download Folder WIN 7

One day ago, I made the change from a HDD to an SSD for my primary drive. Prior to any change, I moved much of the data that had been on the HDD primary to a second HDD (DATA) drive. I backed up the files to an external drive. I then formatted the new SSD and then cloned the HDD to the SSD using Acronis. When I booted up everything seemed fine. Today, I started playing with the PC again and realized my downloads/download folder in Win Explorer was empty. Further, when I download anything that would normally have gone to that folder, it is sent to my Desktop. One other oddity is that the SSD was originally assigned a drive letter (before cloning) of L. After cloning, it became C; I assume this is normal.
I've read through the guide on restoring the default location of User folders but before I do anymore damage () I though it best to throw this problem out to the community for the assessment of better minds than mine. Any advice/info will be greatly appreciated. I'm still trying to sort out what occurred.
