    Same location Pictures and Music even when i change it


    Hello

    I wanted to change my location of my documents, music, pictures, videos,... to my hard drive so i won't fill up my ssd with junk that i hardly use. Some way i have made Pictures and Music the same location. When i wanna change one back to the default location the other one follows him.
    EXAMPLE:
    location pictures: c:\user\Gerolf\pictures
    location Music: c:\user\Gerolf\pictures --> i change this to c:\user\Gerolf\Music
    this will happen to the pictures location: c:\user\Gerolf\Music

    The titles are also the same. I have the right logo's but it will say on both Pictures on Music what should i do? can somebody please help?

    Thanks you very much for your time

    Hello Gerolf, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might see if using Option 2 in the tutorial below can straighten these folders out back to their default locations.

    Afterwards, see if you may be able to successfully move them.
