    General Windows 10 Questions


    Since new to Windows 10 I have some general questions. I backed up the "User" accounts folder (mine & my wife's) on an external hard drive before I upgraded from 64 bit Windows 7 to 10.

    1. Don't quite understand why there is both a "This PC" & Local Disk C. Both seem to have the same folders?

    2. I want to copy my backed up iTunes folder to Windows 10. Since the iTunes folder is available from both "This PC" & Local Disk C file path will it matter which one I choose to replace with my backed up iTunes folder? I don't want to confuse iTunes and it not know where my files are.

    3. I copied & pasted all my wife's photos from my external drive into "Pictures" on Windows 10. Why did I end up with all these extra folders which appear to be associated with the external drive... I've never had that happen before? It doesn't give me the option to delete either, anything I can do about this?

    4. Within Windows 10 "Picture" folder it has a "Camera Roll" & Saved Pictures folder. When transferring your pictures into this folder should they just be dumped into the general folder or go into the "Saved Pictures" folder?

    1. The C: drive is pretty much a Folder under This PC but was much the same in earlier versions of Windows with My Computer, same thing just different name.

    2. To avoid that confusion scroll down in File Explorer [renamed from Windows Explorer] to Users then to your name/logon then again down to Music. iTunes usually stores their Folder in that one. Looking at the This PC shows what may be considered as the Libraries above the C: drive, usually just a shortcut or pointer to the actual files for the logged-on user.

    3 & 4. Might be similar to 2.
