[Running v3.8.0 beta 1 in Windows 10]
For my own animations, I use the following line in the master povray.ini file--
with *backward* slash marks, and no file extension-- to put all of my image
renders into one folder:

Output_File_Name=C:\Users\Kenneth\Documents\Kens_POV_Ray_rendered_IMAGES\

No double-quotes needed-- unless there is a space in one of the folder names,
then the entire name would need the quotes like this:

Output_File_Name="C:\Users\Kenneth\Documents\Kens POV-Ray rendered IMAGES\"

If I recall, at some point in the past there was a discussion about backward
slashes vs. forward ones re: Windows. I don't exactly remember why I settled on
using the backward variety. :-[  Except that it works, ha.

BTW, I also have v3.7.0 installed. I took a look at its povray.ini file, and I
use the same syntax there.

I hope this helps.
