I just recently got an SSD to put my OS on and a few games from my HDD, I managed to do the migration successfully but a problem has occurred when I want to put the Desktop, Documents, Pictures etc folders onto the HDD.
I was changing the location for the Desktop and Pictures folders but it seems to have made them now shortcuts to my HDD Drive (F: Drive). These two folders have the icons for the right folders but they're both now named: "F:\" and whenever I click on them they just open and show the same content as my F: Drive. Anyone know whats going or what i may have done to cause this to happen?

You set the locations to the F drive, so that is what is opening. Sounds like that is what you wanted to do. If this is not what you intended it to look like you may have selected the wrong folders or moved them to the wrong location. From the screenshots the F drive has the files from your pictures, just like you set it to.

You may have wanted to have them under sub-folders, in that case you need to create those folders first, then point the new location to them.

I wanted them under sub-folders, which is what I thought I did but it looks like I didn’. Can I rectify this anyway or am I stuck with it like this unless i do a full drive wipe of C: And F: drive and re-migrate everything from my backup drive?
