    Problem with Adobe Digital Editions and Windows Fax and Scan

    I moved the C:\Users\Roy\My Documents folder to my G drive, but decided I preferred things as they were and moved it back. However, when I open Adobe Digital Editions, which contained 15 items, the library is empty. I click "Add item to Library" and the program opens a window named Digital Editions which contains the 15 items and which I assumed to be the My Digital Editions Folder which is a subfolder of C:\Users\Roy\My Documents. I opened the items one by one and they were added to the Adobe Library.However, I then found that a new My Documents folder had appeared in my G drive, and this folder contained a My Digital Editions folder identical to the one in C:\Users\Roy\My Documents. I deleted the G drive folder but then found that when I opened Adobe Digital Editions the library was empty again. If I go through the Add item to Library routine again the My Documents folder reappears in my G drive.

    The same sot of thing happens with Windows Fax and Scan.

    How can I stop this happening?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,Roy

    I suspect the Digital Editions folder was physically located on the G Drive. You should have moved it back using the approved method that you used to move it to the G Drive. The Library is just a pointer that allows you to point to folders all over your HD in all partitions. The Libraries do NOT actually hold the data, they just point to the data. If the My Documents folder is still on the G Drive you have to actually move this data back to the My Documents in C:, Users, "You Name". Do not move the data to the Libraries. You can point to the data using this method.
