Why would you drag the whole folder on the Desktop? You might have only a
shortcut on the Desktop and the actual folder in Windows.old.
If this is the case, in Windows Explorer cut and paste (faster than copy and
paste) the Music folder wherever you want - either in User/Music/ or,
preferably, on a different partition. That's because you might want to
delete Windows.old at some time. Also, you need to make a backup copy of the
Music folder on another hard-drive... just in case.
Ownership... as posted by Rick Rogers above.
