    Cannot Locate One Drive Folder


    Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.1052) I attempted to follow the instructions in the tutorial for changing the location of One Drive to my D Drive. I was able to unlink the account. However, when I go to File Explorer: This PC > Local Disk (C) > Users - One Drive is not there. How do I locate it?

    :)

    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

    Location Tab Missing from Almost All Folders

    I assume your referring to the Location tab in the Properties of user folders .... Documents, Desktop, Downloads, Pictures, etc

    If the tab is missing, it would suggest you're not looking at/accessing the actual user system folder, but simply folders that have the same name(s).

    Do the folder listing(s) in Windows/File Explorer have the user system icon, or are they just plain common everyday folder icons?

    Try restoring the icons to their default location C:\Users\username\

    Note : "Restoring" doesn't mean simply copy/move > paste. The registry has to be adjusted accordingly. This forum has steps to do just that ...
    Restore Default Location of Personal Folders in Windows 10

    Looking at this part, and having second thooughts ...

    Yo don't "create" user system folders, you have to re-locate them from the original system location (as indicated above).

    But if you're referring to everyday-usage user-created personal folders ..... they don't have a Location tab.
