    As the title stated I recently migrated from my Macbook to iMac and now when i click on the documents folder, I'm told it can't be found. Everything else opens up with no problem as far as I can tell. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I do, as well as in the sidebar. When I click on the sidebar, that's when i get the alert telling me the folder cannot be located.

    I don't think so, but i'm unsure. I've read where the permissions notice says something about permissions. Do you think it has something to do with the path name etc.?

    Copy the line below then select the Desktop then hit shift-command-g and paste the text into the box and hit return. Does that open the Documents folder?

    Code:
    ~/Documents

    Okay... open Finder and in the left column drag the Documents link off until it disappears in a poof. Now open ~/Documents like I described then drag the Documents icon back into the left Finder column. That should give you the correct path to the shortcut and fix this.
