    retargeting Document folder under This PC to C:\User\Julie\Documents from...


    I have a new PC. It has been set up with OneDrive. I don't want it. I uninstalled it but the documents folder under This PC is still OneDrive\documents. I can not point it to a new location. I want the document folder to be C:\User\Julie\Documents NOT C:\User\Julie\Onedrive\Documents

    :)

  2. C:\User documents folder annoyance

    Hey,

    Just got a new PC and did a windows update. The documents folder that was once located at C:\users\XXXX\documents is now C:\users\XXXX\onedrive\documents.

    is there a way to reset this?

    Steam has defaulted to storing files there and when i just move folders certain games cant find what they need. THIS is the real annoyance

    My Documents Files - Deleted?

    I have a PC where I have moved My Docs away from my C: to my E: so i can perhaps suggest a few things to check.

    1. The documents and settings folder will still be present on your C: (although unused)
    2. My Documents on my E: is shown as E:\Data (do you have a similar directory)
    3. Is your missing data in this \Data folder if it exists?
    4. If you click the My Documents shortcut does it take you to the default C:\doc and settings\blah blah, or does it take you to the \Data folder?

    Ive had a similar issue with an application resetting the My Docs path back to its orig location and in essence orphaning the My Docs on my E:

    My Documents Files - Deleted?

    Thanks for the reply though my drive letter is actually F:\ and does not show a Data folder. When I click on the shortcut it takes me straight to my (administrators name)/Documents, so the link is correct. Not sure what happened.
