  1. Folder Object Name desynchronized with displayed name


    I got a new computer with only a 256 GB SSD and installed Windows on it.

    Because I have a considerable amount of other personal files on my computer, I decided to Move the big folders like "Documents" and "Music" from the SSD (C:/Users/Seth (my username) folder) to a hard drive.

    I then wanted to move the Music folder back to the myuser folder and messed up when naming the folder I was moving it to.

    Now the Music folder has "become" the Seth folder in my SSD.

    After this happened, I restored the default location of it (which I should have done in the first place) and it reset it to the C:/Users/Seth folder, but because the Seth folder is now named Music and the name can't be changed, Windows seems to think they are the same things.

    Here is the current folder structure of my SSD:

    When I open the Properties > General window of Music, you can see how the folder does not want to change its name and it is read only:

    When I open the properties > Security window of Music, you can see how the Folder thinks it's the Seth Folder. If scroll down, it also has inherited the permissions of the Seth folder:

    All I want to do is return the folder back to the C:\Users\Seth folder and have it show that way in File Explorer. Currently the way the file system is structured is not impacting the usage of my system in any way, it's just really annoying to have my Windows User folder called and look like the "Music" folder.

    :)
