  2. Change download folder location but still saves to original drive.

    Hey all.


    I changed the Download folder location from my OS Drive (C:\) to my (F:\) drive. However, even after making this change, items are still being downloaded into the C drive, and cannot be found on the folder assigned for the downloads in my F drive.


    Am I missing something? The location is changed when I view the properties for the download folder, but there is still a Downloads Folder under C:\users\name\downloads that my downloads are being routed to instead. This is just a regular folder called downloads which cannot be deleted or have its location modified.


    Thanks for the help!

  3. Download Folders - Default C drive and Main F Data drive!

    Thanks - but that didn't work.

    I only get the Locations tab on when picking the Downloads folder Properties
    I want to make the default.
    ...on my Data drive.

    However, the C:\ drive 'Downloads' folder does NOT have the locations tab under Properties and this is the one I want to either merge with the Data Drive folder, or ensure that this is NOT the main Downloads folder....

    Cheers.

    Download Folders - Default C drive and Main F Data drive!

    If the location tab shows up for "Downloads" folder in your data drive, it implies that the "Downloads" shell folder is already relocated to your data drive (which exactly is what you wanted). Then all you need to do is
    move the contents of your Downloads folder from C:\ to the one in your data drive, and delete the empty Downloads folder after making sure everything has been moved.
