    The reason I wanted to put it in the D: drive was to create more spacefor my games

    If they are on your D drive, right click them, select properties, go to the location tab and select restore default. It should move them back. Then move them the right way. Use option 2 here. It works in Windows 10 too. User Folders - Change Default Location - Windows 7 Help Forums
