Folder Movement Mishap

In an attempt to move the My Documents folder to another hard drive, I somehow got that hard drives partition to show in my user folder. I cant seem to get it to undo. How can I remove the drive from showing in my user folder?

Thank you for any insight!

Hello IrishPilot, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you may have selected the E drive by mistake when moving the My Documents folder location.

See if restoring the default My Documents folder location may be able to help.

Hope this helps,
