Error After Moving Dropbox Folder Location

Error After Moving Dropbox Folder Location

Explorer | Level 3

My Dropbox folder used to be located on my C: drive. My C: drive became full (small drive reserved for operating system and programs). I went through the Dropbox app on my computer and moved the drive to my secondary harddrive (1 TB). I am able to see all of my files and access them online. However when I try to access them on the computer I get an error that "The directory name is invalid".
