I dont this as all i did was copy the documents I didnt delete them. plz help this is annoying. dam I hate vista

Location not available

F:\Jessica's stuff\desktop refers to a location that is
unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer,
or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is
inserted properly inserted, or that you are connected
to the Internet or your network, and then try again.
If it still cannot be located, the information might
have been moved to a different location.

if F:\ is the external drive, you may have it mapped as a network drive or F:\Jessica's stuff\desktop as a network location. windows is looking for it and it is not connected. that's my theory.

so do you get the error when the drive is connected ?
