  1. Windows10: folder in mulitple different locations?


    I am an architect. I keep drawings for each project in a Drawing folder under a project name. I keep Administrative documents in another folder under the appropriate project name. Sometimes I would like to have access to administrative docs but located in the Drawing folder. Is it possible to place a duplicate folder elsewhere which will reflect any changes made to files in that folder? Any cautions to doing this?Stephen

    :)

  2. 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

  4. Windows10: folder in mulitple different locations?

    restoring a deleted file or folder to a different location

    I've been caught numerous times by "implied" questions. No more.

    If you're lucky then the folder is still available in the Recycle Bin. You can restore it from there, but only to the original location. You should now do this:

    1. If the original folder still exists in Windows Explorer, rename it, e.g. by adding the suffix .org.
    2. Right-click the deleted folder in the Recycle Bin, then left-click "Restore".
    3. Consider implementing a robust backup scheme. Lots of people defer this step until they suffer a major catastrophe. We see their posts regularly in this forum.
