Windows 10: How can I reset the sync data in Windows 10 ?

    How can I reset the sync data in Windows 10 ?

    Excuse me my bad english.
    I have an issue with MS Account and Windows 10.
    When the first official build was available, I made an install. But I made a mistake with my username. Instead of typing Leonardo, I typed Leona.
    With that, I got folders like /users/leona and others.

    Well, today I made a clean install of the latest build (iso 10130) but after I logged with my MS Account, I checked the users folders and the wrong name is there again.

    How can I reset my sync data and to remove this wrong name ?

    The user profile name has nothing to do with Sync settings.

    If you create your account as a Microsoft account, the account name is truncated to 5 letters. To work around this, you can create a local account first, then switch the account to an MSA account.

    Hello Leo, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    In addition.

    If you like, you could switch that account to a local account.

    Afterwards, add a new Microsoft account to your Windows 10 with your email address and username you wanted instead.
