  1. Unable to find user folder


    So I changed my user name on my desktop and despite changing it, the user folder still displays the old user name and it seems like photos downloaded from a game is transferred to a folder under the new user name but I am still unable to find said user folder for the new username.

    Any help for this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    :)

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.

  3. Nicrite Win User
    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions

    Unable to find user folder

    Unable to see folder C:\users\all users

    Thank you for your reply.
    As you can see in this image, "All Users" does exist.
    Also, where do you find C:\ProgramData, as it is not listed on my machine?
