    3 objects in Users folder have no location tab


    I've created folders on an H: partition (on another HDD) and "moved" where most of my User data will reside, but 3 remain.

    3D Objects is still in Users on C: but has no location tab, so I can't point it anywhere. Favorites folder has no location tab and after attempting to move it (when it had a location tab) I now have one in each folder. My OneDrive folder in User also has no location tab.

    I'd like to finish 'moving' all objects such that anything is saved in the respective folders on the H: drive. Have not found a solution so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you.

    :)

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions

  3. "Location is unavailable" for C: folder.

    Hi Jeff,

    This error message usually appears when the hard drive files get damaged or corrupted.
    Restoring folder's default location or recovering the data and formatting the disk would help diagnose and address this problem. Make sure to log in as the administrator. Follow the steps below:

    • To restore to default location.
    1. Go to C:\Users.

    2. Open the folder name with your user name.

    3. Right-click on the desktop and select Properties.

    4. Under the Location tab, click the Restore Default button.

    5. Once done, restart your PC.

    • Verify the permissions set on the file.
    1. Open File Explorer.

    2. Right-click the file folder and select Properties.

    3. Go to Security and select Advanced.

    4. Check the box for Replace all child object permission entries with permission entries from this object at bottom.

    5. Click Apply, then OK.

    Once done, try accessing the folder again and let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

  4. 3 objects in Users folder have no location tab

    Files folders and storage

    Hi Peter,

    We need more information to be bale to help you better with this issue. Are you facing any issues when saving the word documents or when composing any documents?

    If the issue is with saving documents, where are you trying to save them and what is the error message displayed?

    I would suggest you to check if the users folder is displayed as "read only'. Open File Explorer, click on the driver where windows is installed, and open the users folder. Right click on the users folder, and then check in the general tab, if it is shown
    as 'read only'. If yes, I would suggest you to try these steps and check if the issue persists:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are

      located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child

      object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click

      Ok.
