    User's folder is not present in c:\\Users

    Putting aside your somewhat random use of forward, backward, and double slashes, please explain the difference between:

    • In Windows 7 Window Explorer, one cannot view the UserName folder
      in c:\\Users
    and

    • UserName folder, normally viewable from c://Users, can be still be viewed and fully accessed from UserName's Desktop
      via Window's Explorer
    Click Start, type C:\Users into the Search box, and press Enter

    Please list everything you see. If you would rather not reveal actual user names, use UserA, UserB, UserC, etc. Please mention whether view hidden files and folders is enabled or not.

    Is the name of one (or more) users missing from the list of items?

    Navigate to any document in the "UserName folder" that you can't see in C:\Users, then right-click and select Properties.

    What is shown as the document's "Location"? Again, if you want to use UserA rather than the actual name, that's OK.

    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

    What is "C:\Users\DevToolsUser" it showed up in my users folder

    Unable to see folder C:\users\all users

    Using win10 - 64bit
    Logged into cmd prompt as admin.
    Cannot see C:\users\all users with the following cmd's

    Folder does not show in normal File Explorer window
    Run TREE cmd and the All Users folder does not show.
    Run DIR cmd for C:\users and All Users does not show
    Run ATTRIB -s -h C:\users and still do not see All User folder appearing. Restart after running ATTRIB cmd, but does not trigger reload of folder.

    BUT, when I
    Run DIR cmd for "C:\users\all users" the folder and files show
    Run ROBOCOPY and the All Users folder and its files transfer.

    Somehow this folder has become hidden and I am unable to unhide or see it.

    Any suggestions?
