  1. Documents Folder is missing in C drive.


    I've been trying to install some mods onto a game on my laptop all day to no avail. I realized that my documents folder isn't in my c drive and I have tried registry, and copy and paste the folder in and nothing works. I haven't backed up my laptop before, so that isn't an option.

    :)

  4. Documents Folder is missing in C drive.

    Robocopy copies folders not in Documents to my backup Documents folder on 2nd drive.

    Two things:

    • You must surroound your folder names with double quotes:

      robocopy "C:\Users\my name\Documents . . ." "D:\Dropbox\my name\Documents
      . . ."
    • Robocopy often hides target folders, causing users to think they are missing. Look for hidden folders.
