i wanted to share my music with the guest account, so after googling i came across some microsoft support saying to move the folder into the shared folder. now i want to move it back and i get an error message stating this a system folder and cannot be moved or renamed.
how can i move it back to my documents?

What folder did you move into the Shared Folder? Look for the same sub-folder you moved in the Shared Folder and move it where you want it. System Folder can not be moved.

First go to Start/My Computer. On expanded menu, select shared documents. Find the shared folder where your folder "My Music" is. Then all you have to do is right-click on that folder, select cut from menu, go to My Documents folder, right-click it and select paste.

Hope I got that right. :whistling:

thats exactly what i did, cut and paste, to move it into the shared folder but when i try to cut and paste back into the my documents folder i get this message "My Music is a Windows System folder and is required for Windows to run properly, it cannot be moved or renamed". i dont get why windows would let me move it to the shared folder if i cant move it back.
