    user folder full of users 00x numbered folder


    Hi,
    I wander why my users folder is full of folders with numbers users name.
    This is a view of it.
    What's the reason for them?
    Can't I delete some?
    Or
    I dual boot with Linux, under Linux can't I backup the folder and keep only some "latest" user version?

    :)

    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

    Renaming the users folders

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    You are trying to rename the User folder, which can’t be done through the File explorer. Whatever user name you use of your User account, user account folder will have same name. You can rename the Subfolder of the User account folder but not User
    account folder.

    If you want rename the User account folder, change user account name using the suggestion

    Lets’ refer to these steps to rename the User account and check if that helps.

    • Press Windows and X keys together.
    • Click on Control Panel, click on User Accounts.
    • Click on User account, then click on “Change your account name
    • If it’s prompting for password please enter and click on Yes. If you do not have password click on
      Yes.
    • Enter the new user name.
    • Click on change name.
