One of my Common Folder is stuck in an unwanted location

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by Steve Karsidi, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. I've 2 logical drives with D: meant for for data. C: was running out of
    space, so I moved all the Common Folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Links
    etc) onto D: drive (eg D:\Documents)...but accidentally for Downloads it was
    direct in D:\ root.

    So when I open my personal folder, for Downloads it is replaced with the D:
    drive icon (replaced the usual green/blue Downloads folder icon) consisting
    of every data folders plus the recently moved Common Folders. So messy.

    I wanted to restore the Downloads common folder back to default
    "C:\Users\Steve\Downloads" but Vista won't let me with an error message:
    Failed to build the list of regular subfolders under "D:\System Volume
    Information" Access is denied.

    It's driving me nuts, no one including MS tech support can help. I need an
    easy solution, can you help me please?
