So here's what happened:
I have 2 HDD drives. C drive, I want to use only for system things, because it's only 55gb in size (it's SSD). For all other stuff (apps, documents, music, videos, games etc.) I use D drive. By deafult windows stores everything under C. So, I decided to change locations of my maps in "This PC" (Videos, Music, Documents...). I created folder with my name in D drive, then changed location in location settings for each one ... EXCEPT music, which I forgot for some reason. So months went by, and still my C drive is getting fuller and fuller. Today I realized my Music folder is still pointing towards my deafult location (C). I decided to move it. Then all hell broke loose! I hornestly do not know what happened, or what I did, but I will try to explain in best of my ability:
I right clicked on music folder under "This PC", selected properties opened location tab and set the location ("D:\MyName") Ofc this was a mistake! I should created new folder inside MyName folder called "Music". Result was as you'd expect: Contents of the Music folder were moved inside of MyName folder. Then I did another mistake (I didn't know you can't do this with folders that are inside "This PC"). I said to myself "no big deal". Created New Folder (inside MyName folder), named it "Music" and selected all files that should go there, and just draged and droped them inside. This MESSED my Windows up bad! Instead of moving, my MyName folder has been reanmed and replaced with "Music" folder from "This PC"! It even has the symbol ... Look! : Attachment 105767
Windows treated it as music folder in "This PC" screen. So when I would click on "Music" I would get sent to my main user folder (called "MyName") which contains videos, music documents, downloads ... you get the picture. My direct link to music was LOST But wait! It gets WORSE!!
I ofcourse tried to fix this problem myself. So I changed the root location of my documents and stuff a few times and ended up with ... well Idk how to even call it. This picture will have to do: Attachment 105769
That's right: The Music folder is now called "D:" and when you click it, it opens my D drive. My documents folder is somehow empty, and what is supposed to be videos folder now has same name as my main user folder (called "MynName" in this case) If I rename my user folder the "videos" folder renames to that! And ofc opens it. It's even wierder: If I decide to create new folder in my D drive that is named after me, I can't. The computer merges it with mymain user folder, as if both had the same name. It's no matter what I rename my "MynName" folder to. And btw.... if I try to open my Pictures folder, I get error saying original location has been moved and/or deleted!
So in short ... all my shortcuts in my "This PC" are broken. I do not know what rules they even operate under, coz they don't behave like normal folders AT ALL! But yeah, you guessed it. It gets even worse. For some reason, my system restore is turned off. I don't remember when I did it, but I must've turned it off at some point because I was tweeking my safety settings, and forgot to turn it back off .... ofc this means I can't resotre system to previous date(if Windows 10 even has this option, this is upgrade from Windows 7, I was using before - and this is my first real problem).
So now I ask the Internet ... what do? Restarting PC dosen't work, I can't system restore ... I must fix this manualy the hard way, but Idk how . I can't put all my files to C drive, because it dosen't have enough space. I could copy my files to external HDD (I have one that's big enough), and delete them from PC, then try to set up paths from scratch .... but I do not know procedure. If someone knows ... please help! I'm desperate!
