    Libraries stopped working


    I'm not sure if it's related to the fact that I just installed Windows Media Center but whenever I try to open a Library folder like Video or Music I get this error.



    If I manually go to C:\Users\[username]\Videos it opens the folder just fine. Any ideas?

    Right click on it. Can you see the properties dialog? Are there other locations?

    I can't open Properties, I just get an error "The properties for this item are not available.". I also notice that when I open Windows Media Player there is no music in it, while I had over a thousand songs in it before.

    This is causing other problems, such as one program I use saves autosave files to my user Documents folder, but it can't access the folder so it gives an error instead.

    Try running system file checker.

    From an elevated command prompt, type sfc /scannow

I am running Win8 64bit. I have two internal hard drives: a 118GB SSD (C:) and a 2T HD (B:). Windows was installed onto C: and so the default library locations were set to C:. I obviously didn't have enough room to let C: contain my normal documents so I changed my default library locations to...
