I am moving my documents, videos, etc. folders to another internal HD.  I have two issues:

 

1. When I right-click on the folder, properties, location, and try to change back to default, it gives me a "access is denied error message"

2. When I try to change the folder to a new folder on the HD, it tells me that "the specified path is invalid"

 

Any help is much appreciated!

I would just move these folders using drag and drop in Windows Explorer, and if move didn't work then 'copy/paste'. In fact 'moving; files or folders between different drives is a 'copy' operation since the original folder is left in place.

 

I have to admit I am curious as to why you are looking at permissions.

I am trying to move the location of the folders because the A: drive was selected for all of them, so my photos, videos, downloads, etc. are in the same location.  I have my os, etc. stored on my HD, and then other less important/critical stuff on my HD that takes up more room.
