    Problem with quick access


    I replaced the system disk with another (clone it). Everything is ok but in quick access there are still connections to the old disk that has now become E, Even if I try to delete them and add the new ones, the wrong connections reappear on every reboot.
    I try also
    del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*
    but without success

    Thank

    Hi hispanico

    Can you post a screen shot.

    What do you mean reboot, is this a power down or a restart.

    Are these files or folders.

    Have tried right clicking one and in location tab pointing it new location.

    If you disconnect E: what happens? (of course not understanding how you cloned there might be some risk to this)

    So...
    Can you post a screen shot.

    What do you mean reboot, is this a power down or a restart. ..... both

    Are these files or folders. .... folders

    Have tried right clicking one and in location tab pointing it new location. ...yes but its impossible to changer location

    it seems like the old locations have remained in the windows registry and I do not understand how to clean them

    You said you deleted them. I assume you right clicked and Unpinned.

    Did you consider disconnecting E:

    Hi, this covers how to clear the content of Quick Access - see if it helps.

    It includes 2 more locations besides the one you mention in your #1

    I follow your suggestions and in computer management i select drive i remove disk F restart computer, come back on drive and on disk without label i select M letter and problem gone.
    For the moment i solved but i amd I'd be curious if I put the letter F back on it
