Windows File Reference Error - Location is not available.
Posted on 2012-03-16
After cleaning up my desktop in Windows 7 professional edition using Admin User, I am now getting a error message when I try to access folders in My documents. Windows is telling me
"refers to a location that is unavailable."
When I set up Windows I changed my My Documents folder from "C:\Users\Mike\Documents" to "C:\McL".
Windows used to know this but for some reason it is now looking for folders in the original C:\Users\Mike\Documents location when the folder is actually in the C:\McL location.
This seems to only happen in certain instances in windows 7. If I click on a shortcut in Explorer it works fine. However, if I click on a shortcut under the Libraries function or if I use a shortcut that is pinned to my task bar or if I am in my Recent list of shortcuts they all throw up this error.
Basically when ever Windows wants to find something in "C:\Users\Mike\Documents" I want it to look in "C:\McL" Is there a way of telling Windows this? If so, can someone please give me a SIMPLE step by step procedure of setting this up? Thanks.
