  1. "Other Users" not localized


    Hello, please help me get out of my baffled state.

    My hard drive is "full", or so the system says, and can't accommodate new downloads.


    Settings-Systems-Storage suggests that about half the drive is taken up by "Other Users". But when I go to investigate who they are, I find - no one else.


    Can you please explain this inconsistency? I am in desperate need to clean up my hard drive and the biggest category culprit appears non-specific. Very strange. Thank you

    :)

    Windows 10 Add New Local User Fails with "Something went wrong" message

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing your query in Microsoft Community. I would like to have some more understanding to the issue so that we can diagnose and work on the issue faster. Kindly provide me the following information:


    • Did you use the same Microsoft account to setup user account on this computer?
    I would suggest you to create a new local user account using the below steps

    Steps:


    • From the desktop press Windows flag key + R

    • And type netplwiz and click ok.
    This will open user account window click add and follow the onscreen instruction to create a new local account.

    Reply with the status of the issue and we will be glad to offer our assistance.

  3. Mystery local user present with no account

    Good afternoon Andre,

    Thank you for your feedback, most appreciated. I tried both of your suggestions and the 1st5 user was not listed in either, just my original local user name was listed. I also tried to cut the 1st5 user folder from the C;/users listing and paste it to a
    thumb drive so I didn't loose it but I got this error code, 0x80070057, that prevents me from moving it saying the "parameter is incorrect". Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

    R/Confused

    Also when I got the error I mentioned above there was a Folder with a person's picture and MY local user name, not the 1st5 user name.

    Local Acct user and MS account user - sync them or merge them

    If the local account is the one where you have most of your personal data, this is how I would do it:

    • Sign in to your Microsoft account
    • Copy all documents, pictures and other personal data from Microsoft account's user folders to corresponding folders in user Public (contents of MS account Documents folder to Public Documents folder and so on)
    • Sign out from Microsoft account
    Notice that above steps are only required if Microsoft account user folders contain data you want to keep. If its user folders are empty or do not contain anything worth saving, you can skip the above steps. Continue from below.

    • Sign in to the local account
    • Delete the Microsoft account (Option One in this tutorial)
    • Switch your local account to a Microsoft account (tutorial)
    • Copy the data backed up from old Microsoft account to Public folders to new Microsoft account in corresponding folders

    That's it. Using the Public folders as temporary storage you will have none whatsoever file owner / permission issues later on.
