    Moved Documents folder to enter drive, not folder. Can't restore.


    I did a fresh install of Win10 on an SSD and was in the process of moving the Documents folder to a separate HDD (F drive) using the 'Move to' option but I selected just the F: drive instead of a new Documents folder. When I tried to move again to the Documents folder on the F: drive, it said "invalid file path". When I tried to restore back to default location (in users folder), it stated "access denied". When I go to my user folder now, it looks like below, instead of a "documents" folder, the F: drive appears. How can I change from the documents being the entire F: drive to a folder on the F: drive? Thanks to all in advance.

    Hello tbotello, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might see if using step 4 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below may be able to restore your Documents folder back to the default location.
