I recently installed a new hard drive to replace my current one. I copied all the data of the old one on to the new drive. I went into "This PC" and changed all the default download destination paths to my new drive. But there is a problem. Whenever I download something on Ninite, the downloaded app goes to my old drive, even though I went into properties and changed the letter of the drive to my new one. I even reformatted the old drive and it still sends downloads to the old hard drive. I'm at a loss.

Check the download destination (the full path) that's assigned in your web browser's options & settings as it'll still be pointing to the original download location on the old drive.

eg For Firefox - - - > Options >> General >> Downloads

For IE, Edge or Chrome, can't help you as I never use them.
