    Tried moving User objects, now 3D Objects shows as a folder


    Want to move my User settings to another partition but non-tenforums steps are wrong. Now my 3D Objects appears as a folder 'Dave', in my User folder alongside Pictures, etc. (I moved it back there.)

    I've read the tutorials on this site and will follow. But how do I make my 3D Objects have it's true name again?
    I'm not sure it is not in fact a folder. On the other partition it would sometimes appear as 3D Objects yet other times appear as folder Dave.

    Thank you very much,



    :)

    3D Objects folder

    No, fortunately, it's not that serious.

    My user folder is still intact and everything works OK. Its just that it has the '3D Objects' label assigned to it.

    For instance, in explorer view it displays as 3D Objects but when I click the address bar the full path displays correctly as C:\users\<username>. There is no functional impact just an annoyance. In the unlikely event that I use
    Paint 3D or Mixed Reality Viewer at some point my user folder may become untidy with 3D Object files.

    I moved 3D Objects via it's properties location tab. However, this will no longer allow me to relocate it saying
    Can't move the folder because there is a folder in the same location which cannot be redirected. Access is denied. I get the same message where ever I try to move it.

    3D Objects folder

    In trying to relocate the 3D Objects folder somehow I have managed to accidentally set it to my user folder. My user folder and its contents are still intact but the folder name appears as '3D Objects'. How do I correct this?

    3D Objects folder

    Hee, hee...

    So your main User folder has become the 3D Objects folder (meaning anything that needs to access your User folder would get

    lost and not be able to save, or may crash, etc. due to the new Folder name ) ?

    When you open the 3D Objects/User folder you see the normal User stuff such as Photos, Music, Documents, etc. and a
    3D Objects folder ?

    If there is a 3D Objects folder within the renamed User folder, are you able to rename your User folder back ?

    - Not clear on what method you used when tried to relocate the folder and "accidentally set it to my user folder"
    though.

    Was this in the 3D Objects Folders > Properties > Location tab ?

    If so, try going back to Location and clicking on Restore, or try the Move option again.

    - Failing that go the distance and try full a System Restore to a time before the bungle.

    - Or you may have to repair/create a new User Account.

    Likhitha describes the method in the thread below.

    windows/forum/windows_10-performance-winpc/how-do-i-fix-a-corrupt-user-profile-in-win10

    Basically - "Enable built-in administrator by following the steps below, create a new user profile, transfer all the data from the corrupted user


    to the newly created user profile and check if the issue is resolved."...
    Then delete your original now empty folder.
