I found this discussion while trying to figure out why my location tab disappeared from my folder properties after I did folder relocation.

Turns out that after relocating a folder, Windows Explorer doesn't show the pointer to that file any more and the Location tab goes away (from within WE).

Hit the start button, click the user name, and then a window with folders will open. Check the properties of the folders in that window and you'll find the location tab.
