[Solved] How do I get my documents folder back from an external drive?

Hannah Asks: How do I get my documents folder back from an external drive?
A while ago, I moved my Documents folder to my external drive to save space on my mac using this tutorial:

Open Terminal Type in

cd /Users/Your User ID/


ln -s /Volumes/External Drive Name/Documents Documents

And it worked great. Now, I need to move it back to its original location and I am unsure of how to do this. Can someone let me know?

This command:

ls -leOd ~/Documents

Prints this:

 lrwxr-xr-x  1 hannahcosta  staff  - 31 Dec 20  2020 /Users/hannahcosta/Documents -> /Volumes/MEMOREX USB/Documents/

So, I just need to figure out how to get it from the MEMOREX USB back to hannahcosta basically.
