    Heirarchy of Music folders doesn't work properly with VLC player.


    Version 1903
    Note: I'm using "Music" in quotes to refer to the Win 10 official music folder. It has a musical note on the folder image.

    Moved my music to consolidate on D: drive. Copied folders into top level of D:
    Realized that VLC (my main music player) is programmed only to open in the "official" Win 10 "Music" folder. Moved the "Music" folder onto D: .
    The problem: Since the Win10 "Music" folder is the target for VLC, it is at the same level in the folder hierarchy as all the other folders in the drive. Because of that, I can not get VLC to open another folder. It seems to be locked into the contents of the "Music" folder.
    I'd like to find a way to move the other folders "into" or 'below" (in a parent/child sense) the "Music" folder. Then, I think I could use VLC to let me reach all the other folders in the drive.
    Does this concept make sense? Any other ideas about re-establishing a parent/child setup on this drive?

    :)

    File and folder heirarchy problem

    Trying to consolidate music files on a SSD. First picture shows top file heirarchy (DHeirarchy of Music folders doesn't work properly with VLC player. :) Second pix shows result when clicking on file selected in pix 1. Third pix shows result of clicking on folder in pix 2. No tracks appear in pix 3.
    I can play the files in the folder of pix 2 by right-click and "play with VLC". VLC shows and plays all the tracks in the pix 2 folder.
    Why can't I see the tracks contained in the folder?

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?
