  1. OSC: >Users/username/Documents empty


    I have noticed that File Explorer shows that I have no files in the directory OSC:> Users/username/Documents.


    My files are stored in Onedrive and backed up there and I can see all my files,


    This PC Documents is fully populated with all my documents.


    Can someone explain what is going on here please because I am currently unable to back up my documents via File History.


    Peter

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

  3. This PC\Documents does not equal users\username\Documents

    Since you are logged in with Hotmail account there is a possibility onedrive is running and backing up your files.

    Location for onedrive is usually c:/user/username/onedrive/documents

    Location for normal document without onedrive:

    c:/user/username/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.
