    Should I just rename the PicturesOLD back to Pictures on E: and try to just move the CameraRoll folder again?
    I would rename PicturesOLD to something completely different for now, and only move the Pictures folder to "E".

    I wouldn't move the Camera Roll folder yet. I'm thinking this may be the issue if you move it after already moving the Pictures folder.

    We can check the registry afterwards to verify the paths for both.

    I tried to do that but it won't let me create a new folder in E: with the name Pictures to move the Pictures folder from C: !
    I just get the same message as before (my screenshot) about confirm folder replace and merging folders.

    What do you get when you try to manually create a new folder named "Pictures" in your "E:\Maxine" folder?

    The screenshot below was for when you try to moved the Pictured folder instead.

    No that was the message that I got when I tried to manually create the Pictures folder in my E:\Maxine folder not when I tried to move the folder!

    That is odd to see that when trying to create a new folder called "Pictures" there.

    As a test, temporarily turn on to show hidden folders like below to see if there may be any hidden folders in "E:\Maxine" causing this.

    I've done that and the only new file listed is Thumbs.db and no new folders.

    If you run the command below, does it successfully create a new Pictures folder there, or the same message?

    md "E:\Maxine\Pictures"

    I get the message "A subdirectory or file E:\Maxine\Pictures already exists."

    In that case, go ahead and try moving only the Pictures folder from "C" to "E:\Maxine" to use the existing folder.

    Afterwards, post a screenshot of the same registry key below to see how the paths look.

    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
