    Problem solved. I set the location of Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, and Videos to my F drive. Some of those folders where left in the default location so I deleted them and the mysterious folders don't appear in the network tab.

    Problem not solved. The mystery folders are in OneDrive folder . They are labelled Important 1 and Important 2. They contain music and documents. It seems Build 10586.3 trawls the hard drives and adds folders containing documents , pictures etc. to the network.

    Strange behaviour.
