    I am kind of at a loss, since all the help I have currently seen has shown how to move the existing captures folder.

    Thanks!

    I read somewhere else where it recommended resetting the entire computer. I would VERY much like to not do that lol

    Captures folder disappeared

    Hi NEN Gaming, this might restore the Captures folder for you . . .

    Open the Xbox app, click Settings, and select Game DVR

    Click on Open folder under Saving captures to open the Captures folder at its current location

    Right-click on an empty space in your Captures folder, choose Properties

    On the Location tab, click on Restore Default button and then click OK to confirm the operation
