My document move mistake

Hi people ive done a relly dumb thing and cant seem to find a way back as i have no system restore that i can use.

i have moved my documents folder to my d drive but did not create a sub folder, so now the contents of my documents just scatters the root of my D drive.

is there a way of now moving my my documents folder to a new folder withing my d drive?

If you go into your D drive you can create a new folder in which you can put all your documents in one place.

Hello Westie,

See if doing OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may be able to get the default location of your "My Documents" folder restored first.

User Folders - Restore Default Location

After it's restored, then try moving the default location again.

User Profile - Change Default Location

Hope this helps,
