    Screwed up my D drive

    Hi all..
    Soooo.. i've seen some solutions but not really have been able to resolve this yet..

    My D drive has my main file "D:\Manage under "This PC" even though it's properties identifies it as D:\ and is a system folder so i can't move or delete it.

    There's a clone under D:\Manage that's identical except it's not a system folder. I've managed to delete all sorts of files i didn't intend to but fortunately, i have a recent complete backup so once this is fixed i'll be ok..

    All i want to do is have just D:\Manage.

    I've seen various methods and so far nothing has fixed it.. I DID try the %HOMEPATH% thing and maybe that's when i messed it up. I've looked in various places some here have commented on.. i'll include a few pix to help .. I'd like to use the icons with the various symbols like the music note etc, if possible

    Thanks for your help..:) To save time, i'll even pay someone a few $ if you're willing to walk me thru this via a phone call (it's allowed) via paypal or something.. This is making me crazy..

    On installation the personal folders are on the C: drive under C:\Users\myname. The best way to move a personal folder is to right click on it, select the Move tab then Location to move the folder and contents to your D: drive

    Hi, i did that twice. It said successful, the folder SAYS it's D:\Manage under properties, but it didn't actually move it to the D:\ drive. I waited for 45 min while it moved the files, but when it was done, it was still in the same place. This is why it's making me crazy. What i don't get is why it's positioned under This PC ..
