Messed up my documents when trying to move it

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I got an ssd recently to install windows on and wanted to move my downloads and my documents folder to a harddrive because i usually keep a lot of stuff on there.
I right-clicked downloads and selected a new folder in another drive, no problem.
When I did it to my documents I forgot to create a new folder and put it in the root directory of the drive (ie F:\), now all my documents are stored there but not in their own folder. On top of that its not longer called my documents but rather replaced by the drive name and I can't change the location anymore. It gives me an error if I try to change the location because its of the actual drive not my documents.

I figured it out in case someone else runs into this problem. Reg files are located at:
