    Risks Of Changing Folder Structure


    I am running Win 10 Pro 1903 build 18362.1082. I have a 2Tb internal with 1Tb partition for my personal folder structure. I also have a 4Tb external with 2 partitions for archiving finished folders. I would like to organize my personal folder structure so they are no more than 2 or 3 deep. Are there any risks involved in changing the folder structure? I would be changing well over 50,000 folders.

    Many Thanks,

    :)

    Folder structure

    Hi

    I would like my folder structure to have the list view but show thumbnails for files within those folders.

    In the 'folder options' I can only set either picture view or list view. How can I achieve list view AND show thumbs?

    I have realised I can set this manunally for each folder, but it's impractical as I have thousands of directories.

    Thanks for any help

  3. Lumia 1520 default structure picture folders

    Hi, can anyone tell me what the default structure for the phone's picture folder should be?



    I mean the the structure you see when you look at your phone on the computer.



    I have :



    Phone:

    • Pictures:
      • Pictures:
        • from "phone name":
          • Camera Roll
          • Camera-album
          • Saved Pictures
      • Camera Roll
      • Sample Pictures
      • Saved Pictures


    Is this the correct structure? I have the feeling something is wrong and things are double now, but I am not sure, and I don't want to experiment with deleting things just yet.

  4. Risks Of Changing Folder Structure

    folder structure of /users/... and relation to OneDrive

    Some new installations of Windows 10 do not have folder in the /users/%username%/ folder or have only 1 or a few of the standard structure of 'backups, desktop, documents, downloads, pictures, music, video'. but the OneDrive folder structure is complete
    for more so. The OneDrive/documents is populated with files, but the c:/users/documents/ has no files, The 'Quick Access' list is compete and properly populated. Shall I generate the file structure in the /users/%username%/ folder? Any good articles?

    Thanks. Howard
