    Undo documents folder move


    when GTA V was released i could not install it because of a special character in my name of Users/JoćoPedro.
    I had zet it to C:/Documents

    Now i wanted to put it back and i made a big mistake. I put the new target at C:/Users/JoćoPedro/.
    Now the folder C:/Users/JoćoPedro/ is renamed to Documents and i cannot move the documents folder anymore, it gives the following error.

    How can i set the documents folder now to C:/Users/JoćoPedro/Documents?

    Thanks in advance,
