Windows 10: Backup of Users folder seen as system folder post Win10 clean install
Backup of Users folder seen as system folder post Win10 clean install
I've recently setup a clean install of Win10 onto a new system.
Prior to this I backed up my 'Users' folder from the old setup (also Win10) onto my d:\ drive, on a second HDD.
Now that the system is up and running, I've noticed that the backup 'Users' folder is being 'seen' by Win10 as a system folder, resulting in my inability to rename it etc.
Searching for a newly created document that is located in 'My documents' on c:\drive results in it being called up as existing in:
c:\users\neil\documents (where it actually lives)
d:\documents and settings\neil\documents
How best can I disassociate the d:\drive backup 'Users' folder from my system folders ?
Thanks for the assistance.
I have done clean installations of both W.8.1 & W.10 with bootable USB flash drives on partitions. Can I delete the Windows.old folder in W.10 which contains 18GB of storage space?
The general method to change ownership is not working
Please suggest some other method
I have a computer that is stuck in an "automatic repair" loop. On this machine, the Users folder is on a separate physical hard drive than the system drive.

Did a very smooth clean install of Win 10 Pro 32 bit thanks to Brinks tutorial(s). However...may have screwed it up a bit.

Has anyone else had the clean option, drop the last character of their user folder during the install?
Example, my user folder was called Julian on 8.1 Therefore c:\Users\Julian\Desktop blah blah blah.... Well now its...
