    Can see nothing in C:\users that resembles 5 digits of phone or email

    - - - Updated - - -

    Something very strange happened.
    As mentioned I found nothing in c:\users that resembled 5 digits of phone or email so I tried to login as administrator using first 5 digits of phone number as password. Windows then seemed to drop into the routine that it runs through when it first installed. It started with a blank screen with a big 'Hi' in the middle and than told me to wait as this may take a while.
    It offered the usual garbage page with yes/no answers that I've seen when installing windows.
    I seemed to have lost no data except for a lot of shortcuts I had on the desktop.

    That's the Desktop for the Administrator account.

    Ok will try and create new accounts on both machines and then follow your above instructions.

    I created a new family account and password on the laptop but can't create a family account on the PC either as a local user or Administrator.
    When I go to Computer Management/System Tools, the level Local Users and Groups is not showing up.

    Also under Settings/Accounts/Family and other users I can't add a family member. It just says "Something wen't wrong

    I'm stopping for now as I'm too frustrated having spent too many hours getting nowhere. Both machines are running Windows 1909 yet menu options are different.
    Thanks for your help fellas, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow refreshed.

    One could be Windows 10 Home, the other Pro.

    To confirm -

    Settings > System > About > Windows specifications section

    Could be differences due to user privileges (Standard user vs. Administrator).

    To confirm -

    Settings > Accounts > Your info

    Well I've got it all working. The major problem was the PC is Windows Home and the laptop is Windows Pro which made things confusing. Also I have to run the FDResPub batch file on the PC otherwise I can't see the shared folders on the PC from the laptop.

    Thanks very much for your help OldNavyGuy, it was very much appreciated. And thanks for putting up with me.

    No worries.

    Good to hear you got it going.

    As mentioned above, set the FDResPub batch file to run at system startup in Task Scheduler, on each system.

    Here is a template you can modify and import into Task Scheduler.

    Attachment 285673

    Two places you will need to change in the XML file -

    1.

    <Author>YOUR COMPUTER NAME\USER NAME</Author>

    Should look something like MySystem\Barcode

    Of course YOUR COMPUTER NAME will change for each system. You should now have a matching user id and password on the other systems, so that will (or should) be the same

    2.

    <Command>YOUR PATH AND FILE NAME</Command>

    Should look something like C:\My Scripts\FDResPub.bat

    It will be easier if you use the same path on each system so you won't have to change that.

    Once you've made the changes, open Task Scheduler.

    Right-click on Task Scheduler Library on the left-hand side, and select Import Task.

    Select the XML file and click Open.
