I posted this on the Microsoft Community site as well, but then I found these forums and they seem a lot more active so I thought I might have a better shot here.
So I have a problem where I accidentally created a duplicate of my D: \ drive. This is not the same issue of Windows 10 duplicating display names for which there is a registry fix. I have tried this and it does not work.
Here's basically what happened:
I have an SSD (C:\) and an HDD (D:\). The SSD is rather small so I am trying to reserve it only for things that I want to be there. i.e. I have moved temp files, tmp, internet history, and downloads all to my HDD. I didn't move the Videos, Music, etc files before because I hadn't used them. Today I was going to end up using my Videos folder, so I wanted this on my HDD instead of my SSD. I made one small mistake in relocating this folder to my HDD and this is where the problem lies.
I right clicked on Videos -> properties -> location -> Move. The problem is that at this stage I hadn't created a Videos folder on my D:\ drive. So in the field of where to move the folder, instead of being D:\Videos, it was just D: \.
This resulted in a duplicate of my D: \ drive. One is normal like it always had been (DATA (D: \ the other just has D:\ but the icon is that of the videos folder (picture below). This folder contains everything that is on my D:\ drive and if I delete something from one, it deletes it from the other.
I am not able to move this folder or restore its default location (access denied even though I'm the administrator). I was able to get back the original Videos folder through a fix I found elsewhere. If I open the properties for the D: \ drive (with the videos icon) it comes up as if I clicked on the properties of the DATA (D: \ drive (picture below).
Also, if I open the properties of the DATA (D: \ drive and go to location and click restore default, it thinks that the default location is C:\Users\...\Videos which obviously should not be the case. Basically these two "drives" seem to be linked together now.
This isn't a HUGE problem, but it is very frustrating and annoying and I was hoping that someone might be able to help me. I am not very experienced with Windows 10.
Thank you in advance for any help.
