Scenario: Dual boot Win7/Win8 on a 120 GB SSD. Separate 1.5 TB HDD for storage.
I installed Win 7 first. For the user default folders (my docs, my music, downloads, etc.), I went into properties for each and changed their location to the 1.5 TB hard drive.
I installed Win 8 from a flash drive. What I didn't realize until later was that Win 7 and Win 8 both assigned different drive letters to the data drive. I changed the drive letters in Win 7 to the "correct" set-up to match Win 8. This means the data drive is now E: instead of D:. I didn't think to move the user data files back first, and now when I log into win 7 or open windows explorer, I get an error message that D:\desktop refers to a location that doesn't exist.
What I want to do is change the user folder locations in Win 7 back to their default (C:\users\user name).
Any suggestions as to how to do that? If I go to the data drive where I have the folders, their properties no longer offer the "location" tab that allows moving them.
I'm not afraid to do registry edits.
All advice appreciated....thanks!
