Question How to delete an extra unwanted identically named folder but keep the contents as is.

I made a silly mistake copying a folder to another drive and put it an identically named. I have a redundant/duplicate "Program Files" folder I need gone or at least I think I need it gone.

Original folder name: F:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\
Destination: G:\Program Files\Program Files\Rockstar Games\

Both drives are my data drives. I should have copied the "Rockstar Games" folder into my "Program Files" folder on G:. I want the first "Program Files" on the G: drive gone without loosing its content if that makes sense. It's a large folder so cutting the "Program Files\Rockstar Games\" folder to another location and then deleting the empty "Program Files" isn't an ideal solution. Any ideas?

Uninstall, and re-install in proper location?
I'm trying to troubleshoot a RDR2 launching issue. It's installed on my G: "steam" drive and GTAV (with rockstar launcher)? is/was installed on F:. I thought moving the install to have both games on the same drive without having to re-download would be quicker and easier but I screwed up the copy/paste.

RDR2 is a Steam key but still starts up Rockstar
GTAV is a Rockstar key.

Edit: I decided to copy and paste the file again.
