    How do I move "pictures" folder to a different drive?


    My Pictures folder currently resides as a subfolder to my C:\OneDrive. I have a second, larger E:\ data drive and I want to move my Picture folder there. When I try by clicking on Pictures/Properties/Location and choose a folder I get the message shown below. I've tried

    • create a folder then navigate to it and select
    • create a folder with a name other than "Pictures"
    • simply navigate to the E:\ root or E:\Data

    Nothing wants to work - same message crops up after I hit Apply or Move. What is the "folder in the same location??

    Pictures in Windows 10

    Hi Sugar,

    Apologize for the late reply.

    Are you able to find other files and folders on Windows 10?

    I suggest you to have a look for Windows 8.1 pictures in Windows.old folder.

    Try the following steps:

    • Press Windows + E keys to open Windows explorer
    • Press C:\ Drive
    • under C: drive look for Windows.old folder
    • open users under Windows.old

    Try the search for pictures in here.

    Regards

    Picture User Folder vs Library Picture Folder / Add to User folder

    Hi,



    Form the issue description, I realize that you are trying to view your pictures in the default pictures library. To do so, you have to change the location of the folder that contains your pictures to the default pictures library folder.



    To view your pictures in the default pictures library, I suggest you to follow the steps below.




    • Right-click on the default Picture folder
      and click on Properties.

    • Navigate to Location tab.

    • Click on Move…. and select the folder that contains your pictures and click on
      Apply and then click on Ok.


    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us for further information on Windows. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.
