    Missing document folder in C drive

    Hi teresakrajewska,

    Is this the usual Documents library folder or one you created yourself?

    If it is the usual Documents folder, i t should be located here (replace username with your login name)

    C:\Users\username

    Or in the address bar of File Explorer, paste this and hit Enter:

    %UserProfile%/Documents

    How to change locations of Documents or Pictures to C:\Users\username\Documents or Pictures

    In my new computer setup, Windows 10 set up the folders Documents and Pictures under "This PC" to C:\Users\username\OneDrive\Documents and C:\Users\username\OneDrive\Pictures. I want to set up these folders to C:\Users\username\Documents and C:\Users\username\Pictures.
    I tried to change location through folder properties\location\restore default. But windows did not allow me to do it, showing an error message "Can't move the folder because there is a folder in the same location that can't be redirected. Access is denied".
    How do I change the folders of Documents (Pictures) under "This PC" to
    C:\Users\username\Documents (Pictures)? Thanks.

    Documents folder is in D:\users\username\pictures

    Win 10 20H2 ver: 19042.1052

    I have my SSD partitioned with programs on C and data on D. All was going well for several years until I thought I would try to use Onedrive as a backup and found all my users folders moved to Onedrive so I tried to move them out and now I have my Documents folder in my Pictures folder! In fact I don't even have a D:\users\username folder than I can access without it taking me to pictures. I am reasonably confident but don't want to make any more silly changes. How can I get the documents folder out of Pictures - please! I have done two screen shots that I believe demonstrate my issue.
