Can't complete update to Windows 8.1.

I can't get my computer to download the Windows 8.1 upgrade, I get two thirds of the way through and then a message to say "User or programme file folder is being directed to another partition" how do I alter this?

My guess is that you have moved a folder such as your documents folder to another partition and that W8.1 installer is expecting to find it on your C drive. If thats the case then moving it back to the C drive may cure the problem.

Many thanks for your response Bris, I will attempt to track down the folder and correct the path. Fuzzface.
