Windows 7: Drive in 'User' folder, 'Location' tab in drive properties

20 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Drive in 'User' folder, 'Location' tab in drive properties

*How this came about*
I tried to move my Music library, but instead of including the 'Music' folder in F:\ drive, I included the drive itself.
I promptly included the 'Music' folder in F:\ and set it as the default location, then removed F:\ from the Music library locations.


Eh yeah, this looks embarrassing.

The 'normal' location is F:\ .

I've since deleted the 'Music' library twice and performed restarts for each attempt. None removed my F:\ drive from my 'Users' folder or removed the 'Locations' tab from the F:\ drive properties.

It's a minor technical problem but a major eyesore.

It's too big a mess to sort easily with the way you masked the screenshots.

Try System Restore to before you did this.
