Windows 7: Problems after moving user files

Problems after moving user files

Reading your forums helped me figure out how to move my user files from the (C:) to (F:) to rid of unwanted used space on my SSD to make room for games. In doing so; however, I am unable to view shared folders on my Samsung Smart TV, or share my user files over the network in windows 7 (IE: open networking and sharing center/choose homegroup and sharing options/click on the libraries I want to share) from my main computer. I click the libraries to share, save changes, then click back in to see that the options were unchecked again. I didn't find any forum talk about this so here I am.

I am able to view the other computers shared media on this computer and the TV can view other computers shared media, just not this one.

I had no issues before moving the user files.
