When I open Windows Explorer and click on "C" drive,the top picture is what I see. The middle picture is when I clicked on Tony (My name). The bottom picture is the contents of Tony folder. So back to the posting you had trouble with. Should I transfer the "Users" folder with all its contents,the Tony folder with its contents,or am I better transferring individual folders as in the bottom picture.Your advice please.

Just got round to moving folders to D drive. When I right click properties I don't get the option of "Location" see below.

Finally got the folder moved,I had to go into "Users" then Documents. Only trouble is, it shows up as a shortcut, showing a shortcut icon with the words RecentPlaces

Chronos the 2nd,thank you for the pictures,and thank you all for your help. Hopefully I have finally managed to move the folders,I'm not sure but I may not have been clicking the Accept button. I will now try to load my files from my old laptop into the new folders on my "D" drive.
