    MS Updates Rename “MyDocs” folder

    Hi everybody,

    In the last 3 years I installed Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise from scratch on about 10 computers. After installation I do a lot of customization. One of the customizations is:

    Every computer has physical D drive.
    I create new folder on D drive called “MyDocs”
    I go to my profile folder on C drive
    Right-clilck on “Documents” folder
    Click “Location” tab
    Click "Move" button
    Select “MyDocs” folder on D drive

    The issue is that after maybe 70-80% of the time after I run MS updates “MyDocs” folder on D drive is renamed back to “Documents” folder.

    Does anybody have similar setup with “Documents” folder and have similar issue.
    And how to stop renaming?
