    ATS has the files saved in some other location that we're trying to locate.

    You might check the settings in the games to see if one may show you where its default save location is.

    Hey DrFeelgood-

    If I read things correctly, you're saying that you know that you have some gaming files saved somewhere, because they are being accessed by another gaming program, but you have been unable to locate where they are? I might have missed it, but did you try doing 'search' for any of the files, then identify their location that way?

    There's a program that is good to have, that might help too. It's called Everything.

    It sounds like it's still saving in your OneDrive Documents folder.

    So the only thing there is for me to do now is to format?

    Do you know the name of one file that should be in the Documents folder? If so, install Everything Search. Let it run after install and build it's index. Usually take 10 to 30 seconds or so.

    Enter the name of the file and see what it shows you.

    It's really sounding like the files are still being saved to OneDrive, as Brink indicated. It appears that 'Search Everything' did work, but it only shows OneDrive as the location. I just can't think of another reason why 'Search Everything' would only find the files on OneDrive, if there were others with the same file name on the computer.

    Just to confirm, you did look over the LINK from Brink's post? (Because it sure seems as if it fits)

    I think Filezilla is seeing the My Documents junction that is one of many there for backward compatibility.

    results of dir /al

    Volume in drive C has no label.
