Windows 10: Unable to move location of My Documents or My Pictures folders
Unable to move location of My Documents or My Pictures folders
So currently when I go into "This PC" I have 6 icons at the top : Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures & Videos.
As I'm running my OS off a 120gb SSD I typically store my documents/photos/videos etc on another drive, in this case my D drive. If I right click > Properties on these folders there is a tab titled Location, which normally lets me change where the folder points to. However on both the Documents and Pictures folders I see the following issue when trying to change away from the default "Onedrive" location :
Note : This is the error I get when I try to move the folder location ANYWHERE, not just to the D drive.
Any help or troubleshooting ideas appreciated.

This could be from what you have set in OneDrive settings. Using the tutorial, set Documents and Pictures to auto save to This PC only instead like in the screenshot below to see if that may help.

You know the ones I'm talking about, the symbols that show the battery percentage, the calendar, and the sound.... they are in the lower right corner. I want to move them to the lower right corner of my second monitor, without making my second...
When I had Windows 7, I had literally every single thing in My Documents. Every song, every file, every tax record, every picture...literally everything. That way, when I backed up my hard drive, I just plugged in the My Passport Ultra drive,...
I am trying to move my documents folder from the external drive I put it on before installing Win10. It looks like its going to move, then says its done but nothing has moved. Any ideas?
