Red face Windows 7 - Moving Files & Folders to Different Drive

As a start, I "thought" I followed this TIP exactly but messed up somewhere:

Any advice or insight would be appreciated.

To err is human, to blame it on a computer is even more so.

Thanks for the responses and advice. I did not see them until today, August 28th.

Actually, I solved my issues prior to starting this thread in an effort to get help for another TechSupport/Gizmo subscriber who, like I had, is still having issues with having tried to move a personal folder from one drive to

I'll direct him here. Perhaps it will be of use to him.

Thanks again and pardon my delay in replying.
