Can't Change Store Path in Provisioning Server 7.1

We have a Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter running Citrix Provisioning Server 7.1. We recently changed the path to the store, but it was accidentally entered wrong. When we went back in to correct the mistake, the MMC console froze up. Now, we can't access the Store of the Provisioning Services Console.

If I try to modify the Properties of the Store, an MMC box opens that says Action and it just cycles for about a minute and then lists a critical error stating "Server communication timeout."

I've already tried rebooting the server and creating a new Store. The new store will get created but since the old store is there, the console still freezes. I can't delete the old store out of the console.

See attached pictures

Any advice?

i think powershell is the option to check, correct  or delete the store-path.

That works, but I found that you can actually fix it in the GUI as well.

By changing the default store path at the server level, you can get into the store button in order to change the path, and then revert the server path back to the default store path.

Powershell can work but I found a much simpler solution in the GUI through troubleshooting.
