Hi , I have a file issue with my SF2 , I wanted to put my media default folders in my SD card , but I made a mistake with the picture fodler and I put it on the root of the SD . So now my picture folder is a shortcut to my SD card I can't revert the action . When I right-click properties , it shows the SD volume information and no longer the picture folder it was.

how to revert it ? [IMG][/IMG]

It's messy, but you could try the registry.
Run regedit (hit Start or Win+R, type "regedit" without quotes, hit Enter, approve UAC prompt).
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
Edit the strings in the relevant registry values, such as "My Pictures".
Log out and log in again (or just restart).

I can't promise it will work - your error is weird and I've never seen it before - but hopefully it will.
