    Music folder location problem - moving between SSD and HDD hardrives

    I thought it would be easy to move the main music folder (C:User\*name*\Music) from the SSD drive C to the HDD drive D. Here's what I did: right click on Music Folder > properties > location and I set it to 'D:' I clicked yes in the dialogue box and everything inside the music folder (which was just iTunes files but no music files) moved to D: but the actual music folder is not there. When I right click on the music folder now and look at properties it shows me properties for D: instead. I can't move anything back to how it was as I get an error message saying "music failed to build the list of regular subdirectories."

    I want the music folder to be on my HDD drive 'DATA (D:)' so I can import all my music from an old hardrive but I want everything to remain organised as it normally is rather than creating new folders. What is the easiest way to do this in my current situation.

    Please compare with what you actually did. If there are differences, this might help someone to sort out what you've actually done.

    This (linked in the above) show how to restore the defaults. (see Option 2 no. 8)

    Be careful to back up your data- and hopefully you already have a backup anyway.
