About three weeks ago I migrated from XP to Windows 10, putting all my personal folders that were in XP's 'My Documents' into Win10's 'Documents' folder. The eBooks for my legacy eBook reader (MobiPocket) were in the XP folder 'My eBooks', which is now a sub-folder of Win10's 'Documents', and the eBook reader was set to find its files at "C:\Users\Owner\Documents\My eBooks". Also, in XP I wrote a batch file to backup documents to the USB memory (F:\), and I modified it in Win10 as follows:
Xcopy "C:\Users\Owner\Documents\*.*" "f:\JN Daily Backup\Documents" /c /h /s /i /y /q /d:%var2% [date I enter with the keyboard]
Both the eBook reader and my batch file worked fine for about 10 days, and then yesterday both started returning "Path Not Found." When I looked in the File Explorer, 'Documents' was still there with 'My eBooks' as a sub-folder containing my eBooks. But then I noticed that 'Documents' was also a sub-folder of Win10's Downloads folder. I clicked on the Downloads\Documents folder, and everything seemed identical to the main folder Documents. I tried modifying a folder in one, and then found the modified file in the other. When I changed the path in my batch file and eBook reader to "C:\Users\Owner\Downloads\Documents\...", both started working again. As shown in the attached screenshot, there no longer is a Documents folder at C:\Users\Owner in the command prompt window, even though it's still there in the File Explorer.
What's going on? Will the path to 'Documents' keep changing?
