Accidentally Merged System Folders..

Make a folder called "Videos" (if it'll let you) and point the videos Picture folder to it.

 

You could also try editing the registry entry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders (you'll have to log out and log back in for it to take effect)

Windows 10 Pro (64 bit)

 

Okay so I just installed a (C:) M.2 drive to boot windows off of and migrated everything over from my (D:) 4 TB HDD.

I formatted (D:) to make it my storage drive and proceeded to redirect my system folders to it (Pictures, Videos, Documents, etc.) but I clicked the wrong folder when moving my 'Videos' folder and now it is named 'Pictures' and it directs me to my actual 'Pictures' folder. I can't rename it back to videos or move it to the designated videos folder because it now acts like my 'Pictures' folder. Basically I have two 'Pictures' folders now.. 

How do I fix this?
