Windows 7: Moving Files to Different Hard Drive

Moving Files to Different Hard Drive

I am rearranging my files on my PC. I have successfully moved all of the folders except one from G: drive to D:. One folder starts transfering and when it gets to the end it says "Operation was Ended by User". The files actually transferred to D: and are on both G: and D:. The Library still shows as G:. I think the problem is because there is a corrupt file in the folder. During the transfer process, when it prompts me I hit "Skip" so that it bypasses trying to transfer the corrupt file, but the problem exists. Is there a work around so that the Library points to D: instead of G:? Thanks,

Got it solved. My G: drive had some corrupt sectors to it. I ran CHKDSK and it corrected them and I was able to move the file with no problems.
