    Hello,

    I've recently bought a new SSD and decided to move my 'Pictures' folder onto the new drive. I've done it the 'proper' way (right click Pictures, then go to the Location tab and Move the folder accordingly).

    Unfortunately when I then reopen my Windows Photos it appeared it hasn't fully got the message! Although in the settings it is looking in the correct place, all my photos still have the old file path and so just haven't updated (and I no longer open them within the application).

    Any tips?

    I can't see anything useful on Google...

    Do I have to delete all and start again perhaps?

    thanks!
