Windows 10: File Explorer & My Libraries SSD/HDD

    File Explorer & My Libraries SSD/HDD

    I thought I had it right but now have 2 different locations for library folders and This PC (D:\ HDD). Both folders are showing D:\ storage drive but up in File Explorer but have different paths.
    One set was done through Settings > System > Storage
    The other was done by change in the location tab from C:\ to D:\
    This PC folders are D:\Users\Name
    My Library folders are D:\Name
    Is this right? Or should all folders be D:\Users\Name?
    Also should Apps in Settings > System > Storage be saved to This PC (C:) or Changed to This PC (D:)

    Thank You Going Crazy, John

    That is what I do after a new install. I go to the location tab and set a new location on a second storage device.

    Could you provide a screenshot showing the duplicates in File Explorer.

    Here's File Explorer. I followed instructions to move folders from C: to D: and created new D:\Name\Folders
    Also used Win 10 Settings>System > Storage to change folders there to D: those folders are D:\Users\Name
    There also is a OneDrive folder
    Should folders all be one location?
    I didn't move Apps to D:\
    Thank You,
