Hi all,

I have just bought myself two 3TB drives and set them both as mirrors of each other to preserve my information in case of failure.

Previously I had an SSD and two 1TB drives, the two 1TB drives are now in striped mode so to increase capacity to 2TB.

Since doing this I have moved the whole My Documents folder over to the new 3TB storage solution and I am now having problems with my profile.

If I download an exe file to my desktop and try and run it the file says there is an invalid or missing temp file, also the desktop favourite shortcut listed when you download or save something isnít there nor can I save an image from snipping tool.

I am pretty sure this is all related to me moving files around as the computer keeps thinking my documents file is located on F: but it should be on G:

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I want to revert back to default settings and link my documents, music, video and pictures to my G: drive.

Not to worry now I reinstalled windows over the weekend now it is all working again.

I guess thats the plus side to having an SSD on SATA 3, 12 minutes to install windows + updates.
