    Have two files being created from all apps


    Have two files being created from all apps using Win 10. That is, when I save a file it goes two places.



    I have two SSDs on my machine. which has Win 10 (updated from 8). Drive C: has the OS on it. Drive E: is the old one that used to have the OS on it.

    Example:


    Save photo as Jim 2016.jpg it then shows up in two places:
    E:\Users\Jim H\Documents\Pictures
    E:\Documents and Settings\Jim H\Documents\Pictures



    Note: There are two copies of NTUser.dat on each drive.

    Hi jharris91

    So when you installed Win 10 on the new drive did you try to point the libraries to the old SSD drive on E: (Basically told windows no my libraries are on E :. If so, how did you do this please?
