    User folders duplicates solution?


    Hello there!

    Straight to the point:
    In Win10 I've set the default location for docs, music, videos, and pictures to be on my second drive "D" in the "Change where new content is saved" settings and now I have D:/Niko/(all of the above). But when I go to C:/Users/Niko I have the same folders remaining there. So I now have duplicates. I tried to delete them but they reappeared after the first restart.
    Same goes for OneDrive - I've set it to be on my "D" drive, but there is still another empty OneDrive folder under C:/Users/Niko.
    This is what I have now for an example:
    D:/Niko/Documents
    C:/Users/Niko/Documents

    I've tried Google but nothing helped.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Cheers!

    :)

    Duplicate User folder.

    I moved my default Pictures, Documents, Music folders to a new Data partition (D).

    My Users/myName folder remained on the C partition.

    Everything was fine for 2 years.

    For some reason this myName folder is now duplicated on the D partition (D\myName)

    I have now a default documents folder in

    • D\Documents
    • D\myName\Documents
    • Onedrive\Documents
    • C\Users\myName\Documents
    The same with the other system folders.

    I can not change the location of the folders in the 2 duplicate user folders.

    Rightclicking in properties, there is no location option.

    Only the folders in OneDrive and the D partition have this option.

    Any ideas?

    Duplicate User folder.

    Hi Eric,

    To better understand the concern, kindly provide us the following information:

    • How did you move the default folders? Did you move it one by one or did you copy your user folder and paste it on the partition?
    • What other folders are on your partition besides the default folders?
    • Are you experiencing any problems on your computer when you noticed that you have a duplicate folder on your partition? If so, kindly explain to us the problem you're experiencing.
    If possible, kindly send us screenshots of the properties of the default folders on your C: and D: partitions.

    We'll be waiting to your response.
