  1. Videos folder is now on d drive


    I wanted to move my Videos folder from my C drive to my D drive. I set the new location to "D:/" instead of an actual folder, as I wasn't paying attention to what i was doing. This renamed the Videos folder to "D:/", and when i click on it. it just redirects me to the D drive. The videos folder itself is now my D drive. I can't undo this, as I don't have any system restore points. Is there any way to fix this?

    :)

    Map a network drive folder to my video library

    To Include folders using Manage Library Tools, we suggest that you perform the steps below:

    • In File Explorer, select or open a library (ex: Videos) you want to include a folder or drive to.
    • Click on the Library Tools Manage tab, and click on the Manage library button in the ribbon.
    • Click on the Add button
    • Browse to and select a folder or drive that you want to include in this library, and click on the Include folder button.
    • When finished, click/tap on OK.
    Keep us updated with the result.

    Videos folder is now on d drive

    Duplicate D:\ drive

    So my issue appears to be fixed and I did not end up having to format my D:\ drive.

    What I did was click on the File Properties for the D:\ (with the Videos icon), not the one that is my DATA (D: ) which is the proper one, clicked on restore default location, said NO to the merge, then another window came up (which I think I might have said
    Yes to originally, which could be the original source of my problem - I know, this problem is a result of user error
    Videos folder is now on d drive [​IMG]
    ) and I said Yes (after fully reading it and understanding it this time. The second
    message is as follows (please ignore the name and the fact that it's to OneDrive, I obtained the picture from

    Access Denied - moving Pictures folder to default or other locations - Windows 10 Forums
    but the rest of the wording is what I saw).

    Videos folder is now on d drive [​IMG]

    This seemed to disconnect (or what ever the heck was happening) the two listed D: drives. DATA (D: ) is normal. I still had D:\ with the videos icon kicking around. I made attempts to include this in the C:\User\...\Videos folder and then ended up with sub
    folders. Not EXACTLY sure where in the process of what I did fixed it, but at one point I closed the File Explorer window and when I reopened it everything was back to normal.

    Normal DATA (D: ), Normal Videos folder in the proper location and no subfolder, and no random D:\ drive with the Videos icon. Did a full shut down and restart and everything is looking as it should!

    No formatting of the D: drive either, so that's a bonus!

    Thanks for the suggestion though, it was definitely my next step if I wasn't able to fix it otherwise.
