  1. In quick access, my D:\ drive merged with music?


    I was attempting to move my user folders (Pictures, Videos, Music, etc.) by changing their location in properties. However, when I tried to relocate "Music" to my D:\ drive, it seems like they merged together. I can no longer find my music file and the D:\ drive has the regular music icon in quick access. Did I corrupt something and is there anyway to revert this? In quick access, my D:\ drive merged with music? 24d741f4-e4e2-4ec5-a0f3-ce72ef56137f?upload=true.png

    Turned Hard Drive into Music folder

    • Create a folder on the D drive and name it 'Music'
    • Move all the files and folders that should be in the Music folder into this new folder
    • Then in Quick Access, right click the Windows Music Library, select Properties
    • Then on the location Tab, set its location to the new 'Music' folder
    • When asked if you want to merge contents - Select 'No'
    • Click 'Apply' and 'OK'

    If you want you can leave the music folder on the D Drive, or you can then click 'Restore Default' to move it back onto the C Drive

    If needs be for the Documents folder, you can perform the same operation by creating a new Documents folder on the D Drive

    NOTE: the important step is (5) do not merge the contents . . .

  3. how to merge c drive and d drive

    It depends on a couple things.

    If you have two separate physical C and D drives, you can't merge them.

    If the D drive is a partition (not a drive) and its to the right of C:\ in Disk Management, you can right click C:\ then click Extend.

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Disk Management

    Take a screenshot then post in a reply here.

    If the layout is similar to how I described it, try the following. Make sure important data is backed up if there is any.

    Select the D:\ partition

    Right click the ‘D:\’ in Disk Management, on the contextual menu, click the ‘Delete Volume’ option. Click ‘Yes’ when the warning dialog appears.

    The Volume you deleted will now appear as ‘Free space’, you will also notice that the disk icon no longer appears in the list of volumes.

    Right click the Free space partition, and click Delete, click Yes on the Disk Management warning that appears.

    The volume will now appear as Unallocated. Our next step is to merge back that unallocated free space with the system partition (C:\). Right click the System volume and click the ‘Extend Volume’ option on the contextual menu, click ‘Yes’ when the warning appears.

    A wizard will now begin that will guide through the steps to merge back the unallocated space with your system partition.

    The wizard provides a simple procedure to merge back the unallocated space with the system drive. Once you have selected the space, click Next, at the end of the wizard, you will see the amount allocated.
