    My music folder is broken, help me please


    i tried to move music folder to drive D from C. but something strange happened and I almost lost my regular music folder. That is not all and something happened to my documents folder too. You can see them here:Click image for larger version
    later I tried to restore its location to default but this is what happens:Click image for larger version

    and the new documents folder is this:Click image for larger version

    i'm confused now, can anyone help me?
    P.S. I don't wanna move my folders to drive D anymore

    It is because you moved it from D: to C:. There is posts all over on here how to fix that. Do a search for "Repair Libraries".

    Hello Danesh, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default location of your Music folder.

    Did you do all of Option Two exactly step by step for your "C:\Users\Arya\Music" folder?

    Does your "C:\Users\Arya\Music" folder properly show at that location?

    It looks like you Documents folder is not correct as well. It's either missing or it's has become "C:\Users\Documents" for your user profile folder.

    See if restoring the default location of your Documents folder using Option Two may help.

    Double check all of your user folders to make sure they area all set to be in the default "C:\Users\Arya" folder.

    If not, then use Option Two to restore them.
