I recently relocated my libraries from their default location on my SSD to my other HDD. They were working fine for about a month or so until one day I tried to save something to that folder and this message popped up.


 Attached File  downloads error.PNG   7.71KB   0 downloads


I went to that folder to try to see if something was wrong with the relocation. As soon as I right clicked to try to get to Properties, my mouse would change to the blue buffering circle and my computer fans would roar. Then, I'd just close the window and my fans die down again.


What's going on?


Things to Note:

- I can open programs and files from the folder. For example, Word can pull documents from there and I can also navigate there to double click and run something.

- The other folders I moved (Music, Documents, Pictures, etc.) are working perfectly fine

Try right-clicking on Libraries and selecting properties and select 'restore defaults' from the bottom.


This, as you know, will restore all libraries to how and where they were.


If everything works okay then with folders etc, then re-locate them again.


Just an option for when you run out of other ideas :)
