  1. Music folder location problem - moving between SSD and HDD hardrives


    I thought it would be easy to move the main music folder (C:User\*name*\Music) from the SSD drive C to the HDD drive D. Here's what I did: right click on Music Folder > properties > location and I set it to 'D:' I clicked yes in the dialogue box and everything inside the music folder (which was just iTunes files but no music files) moved to D: but the actual music folder is not there. When I right click on the music folder now and look at properties it shows me properties for D: instead. I can't move anything back to how it was as I get an error message saying "music failed to build the list of regular subdirectories."

    I want the music folder to be on my HDD drive 'DATA (D*Smile' so I can import all my music from an old hardrive but I want everything to remain organised as it normally is rather than creating new folders. What is the easiest way to do this in my current situation.

    :)

  2. Appdata Roaming move from SSD to HDD

    Hi, recently bought a laptop with an ssd and a hdd. What i noticed was that every time i downloaded something, even though it was located in HDD, the SSD still took up space. I already moved the download, documents, etc. to the HDD.

    Then i noticed that whatever i download gets into the appdata/roaming folder as well, so is it ok to move the Roaming folder from SSD to HDD?

    unpin and pin from quick access issues

    I have two hard drives. SSD for programs and HDD for storage.

    My videos, music and documents folders are on HDD and the quick access list pins work for them, but

    the downloads folder, also on the HDD, links to a folder on the SSD that doesn't exist. It refuses to unpin, and when I try to pin the version on the HDD nothing happens.

    I tried moving the downloads folder to the SSD and then the link would open that directory, but I still couldn't unpin the folder.

    I would like for the ability to unpin the downloads folder on the SSD and pin the downloads folder on the HDD.
