Solved How do I move user folders back to their default location?

Hey, This is my first time posting on this website but I am seeking help to fix a mistake I made. I was trying to move the Documents folder and Pictures folder to a new location, I accidentally moved it from my C drive to the ROOT of my E drive. Now all of the files previously in these folders are mixed up in the Root of my E drive. I am trying to move them back to defaults, but Windows now just renamed both of them to /E: And Documents and Pictures folders are basically just 2 E drive folders leading to the same place. Is there anyway i can fix this and have the folders back to how they were with the right things in them??
