Move the files and directories from the Pictures root directory and put them in the My Files root directory. They look as if they've been copied to the wrong place.

thanks for reply,
my fm folder which is inside my files directory disappear after i moved all my file to fm folder, so all folders should be under fm directory but this doesn't happen so i finally got the picture folder over fm. if you are talking about the yellow color pictures folder that inside then this was created by me which is attempt to fix the problem.
i did what u said and now the problem got another shape look at the snapshot, now my files folder gone which is overridden by pictures folder???

Ok I see what happened. Here's what happened. You copied the Pictures directory to My Files. Now My Files has changed its display name to Pictures. We need to change it back to My Files. Create a NEW directory in the C: root named 'My Info' (or whatever you want to call it .. but not My Files). Then highlight Downloads, Documents, Music, & Videos. CUT / PASTE the whole directories into that new folder off of the root C:. Now right click the Pictures directory and CUT / PASTE the whole directory into that new folder as well. Now all the folders will be in the same location instead of being in sub folders of each other. That should take care of it.
