    I made some changes to my personal folder as I store my files on a separate
    hard drive.

    My Navigation Pane now indicates that it is (empty).

    Would like to drag some folders from my separate hard drive to the
    Navigation Pane and a little red circle with a bar across it appears and I'm
    now unable to move anything at all to the Navigation Pane.

    When in the Navigation Pane have tried right clicking and niether of the
    default options work.

    Is there a bug somewhere?

  2. The navigation pane is populated with ordinary shortcuts found in your
    'Links' folder.

    To view the folder:

    Type in the Start Search -> shell:links<Enter>

    If you relocated personal folders, you should delete the shortcuts that
    point to folders that no longer exist & create new ones pointing to your new
    folder locations.
