    Windows Explorer tries save files to wrong directory

    In Windows 8.1, explorer tries to save files and often cannot. Here is a screenshot of what I see. I tried the diagnosis button and it doesn't help. This folder path is from my Windows 7 machine and this one is my Windows 8 machine. I transferred files and folders I needed from backups to the Windows 8 machine. It must have included something from the Windows 7 file/folder path because this path mentioned in this error message simply does not exist on this Windows 8 machine. I simply want it to stop trying to save the files to a place that does not exist. Help??
