    How to move appdata/local folder?


    I keep getting file xxx used by system.
    I already have group policies:
    "Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode" disabled
    "Add the Administrators security group to roaming user profiles." enabled
    I've already moved roaming, local low, documents (although some files & folder tree windows recreates on restart in their original local low & roaming location)

    :)

  2. How to access appdata folder

    Hi Jaden,

    Thank you posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty with the problem.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    • Write in the search box the following: “%appdata%” .
    • After the search is finished left click or tap on the folder that the search feature found.
    • If it takes you to the following path: “C:\Users\The user that you are logged in with\AppData\Roaming”.
    • It means that your folders are still there but they are hidden.
    • Click on “View”.
    • Check the box “Hidden items”
    Also you refer to the below link.

  4. How to move appdata/local folder?

    Sync folder between Air and PC locally

    I'm looking for a software which will keep folders on my Mac Air and PC synced via the local wireless network.

    I usually take my Mac with me everywhere and as such have tons of large downloaded files that I have to manually copy over to the PC. I'm looking for something that'll transfer the files over the local wireless network in my home.

    Any suggestions?
