    I apologize for the double post. I cannot find where to edit my previous post (perhaps because I am new)?
    I'm just re-reading the instructions in method 2.

    Step 17-


    Does it mean simply cut/paste the documents that I moved back to the default documents folder on the c drive? It will not cause any issues?

    Hello, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I would recommend to only copy the files back into your correct Documents folder instead. If all of it copies over ok, then you can delete them from the root of the SSD.

    Thank you . Yes, I mean the original location of "Documents" as it first was first automatically designated by windows after a fresh install with no customization.

    Just to confirm, the intended result of this tutorial is not to relocate all my files back to the original documents location, simply to re-establish the original documents location as the default?

    It was always necessary to manually move my files back to the original documents location even after completing the tutorial?

    (Sorry I just got lost at the designation of "old folder" in the last few steps. To me old meant original... not the place the files were moved to... so I just want to make sure I understand before doing anything risky.. but I'll back up :) once again I am so super appreciative of this guide and the assistance! ).

    Option 1 would restore your default Documents folder location and move the files with it.

    Option 2 would only restore the folder location. You would have to manually copy/move the files to it.

    Hi I'm having a problem. After running your .bat files, I have had some problems with applications no longer running properly or just not running at all. Also after I restarted, I got greeted by an error message. Please help me.Name:  error.png

    Hello Brainless, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    What method did you use to move the folders originally?

    Did you originally move only the folders from your user profile folder, or did you move your user profile folder?

    I moved my downloads and desktop folders to my secondary volume by accident. I then used the .bat files to revert the mistake I made.

    In that case it may be best to do a system restore using a restore point dated before you originally moved the folders by mistake to hopefully sort out the error messages.
