  1. Documents library disappeared after disconnecting OneDrive


    I disconnected OneDrive signed out and copied all the files to the local documents folder.After I did that, the Documents library completed disappeared from the 'Home' folder and sidebar.I cannot pin the local Documents folder to the sidebar, even after changing the registry.Any idea on how to solve this?

  3. Document Library hijacked by OneDrive after update

    On Saturday I sat through a very long Windows 10 update. I now have version 1703 installed. As a result of this update, my Documents Library under ThisPC now shows the Documents folder on my OneDrive when selected. The files that used to be present in
    ThisPC/Documents are still on my machine at C:\user\<myusername>\Documents. I have read several other related posts and tried many of the things suggested. My system storage settings are all still set to ThisPC. It does not matter whether or not OneDrive
    is started. I am not interested in uninstalling OneDrive since I use it frequently.

    So, who stole my Documents Library folder and how do I get it back?

    Problem with onedrive libraries

    Hi Mike,

    To restore the shell folder locations to default, open OneDrive and do the following:

    Important: Before proceeding, copy the files in those special folders to another folder or external drive. Please don’t copy them anywhere under Desktop/Documents/Pictures. This is because disabling OneDrive backup for a folder erases the local copies of the files. Copying them to a different location beforehand will ensure that you don’t need to download them again from the OneDrive cloud.



    1. Right-click the OneDrive icon in the Notification area and click Settings.
    2. Select the Backup tab, and click Manage Backup
    3. In the Manage folder backup dialog, click on the Stop backup link under the special folder (Desktop, Documents, or Pictures)
    4. Click Stop backup in the confirmation dialog that appears.
    5. Repeat the step for each shell folder you want to revert to the original location.
