    Missing Download folder


    Just upgraded to a new PC.

    SSD for OS and programs and D drive for storage. My user folders were on the C drive so have successfully relocated these to D drive.

    However somewhere my Download folder has disappeared.

    I have tried all methods to search and restore that I have found online.

    If anyone has a suggestion you're my last hope.


    Thanks

    :)

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
