    My boot drive is C:\

    I may have created the D:\Users.

    Maybe the OS created it.

    I don't remember.

    Only two possibilities:
    - You created D:\Users
    - The drive once had Windows on it and D:\Users (created when Windows was installed on that drive).

    D:\ is a brand new drive so I must have created it.

    If you created and is not linked to a library, you can rename it to something else than \Users

    How do I know if it's linked to a library?

    Yea, but I am not running two OS's
    OK, that's fine. I was also addressing Megahertz's question as how that "can" happen "If" one was doing what I posted.

    All good

    I have been doing some reading and found there are several methods to move C:\Users to D:\Users some saying that updates will not work and stuff like that.
    Is there a program to do this automatically?

    I very seriously doubt it.

    It's a manual process as far as I know. You can get in a jam if you don't know the right method. Files inaccessible; no permission, etc.

    What folders you have under D:\users?

    It isn't a difficult task. Easy during installation.
    I've been using D:\Users since 2011 on win 7 (laptop and desktop) and win 10 (desktop).
    Never had a issue. Windows 10 updates and upgrades without any issue.
