Files disappear after location/move function in Win 8

Bought brand new MSI computer with Win 8 os on SSD (C:)  drive and empty HDD (D:)  data drive. I attempted to move my user files under my created user name from the SSD to the HDD using the "Location" tab and "Move" button in the "Properties" of each user file. First I created a new folder directly in the D: drive called "Allen" to hold all of my newly moved user files with no issues. The first folder that I attempted to move was "Contacts", so I followed the prompts to move the "Contacts" folder to my newly created "D:\Allen" folder, which it did, kind of. Now the "Allen" folder is not showing up in the D: drive, but the "Contacts" folder is. If I select the "Contacts" folder properties it's "General" tab shows its location only as "D:", but when I select the "Location" tab, the text box shows "D:\Allen". I have all of my hidden files set to show.

can you try checking if your issue exists when you navigate your way to the directory by using command prompt?
