    folders names are buggy, must be two/three words... so should be start menu somewhere... at the moment they don't care to resolve the bug
    There is no bug. Sysprep works perfectly, folder names are correct, Start has no issues other than that sometimes it shows a few empty tiles after first boot to desktop, in which case an easy and fast workaround is to unpin and re-pin them.

    folder names are buggy, 100%, as said they loose localized names. try to install without relocating or relocating a november update iso... sysprep in au is buggy too, a lots of files and folders under \users loose their original flags
    start menu is buggy, few entries have wrong position (and localized name) compared to non relocated installation

    Sorry, but I used AU on a clean install, and 0 bugs.

    I don't see any issues in the start menu, and my \Users\Public folders has long names - for example, there is a hidden folder there called Public Account Pictures.
    What is interesting is that your screenshot shows the word "Public" only in "Public Account Pictures".

    In a non-relocated install all folders have the "Public" prefix (when seen in file explorer only, not really). Like this:

    I don't recall if it has always been like this and guess it matters not so much but it is a difference.

    clean install 1607 build 14393 - same as you I think.

    I don't think it really matters as the real name is \Users\Public\Music (for example). File explorer shows "Public Music" if not relocated and (as per your screen shot in post #818) just "Music" if relocated though.

    Like I said I never noticed it before - it may have always done it.

    Interesting. Not a significant big, but a bug nonetheless. And I mean a bug in the OS, not in the guide, Kari Move Users Folder Location in Windows 10

    Not a bug in the tutorial, no. I've been using it successfully for years with no problems.

    the bug has been introduced with au. correction is in my post few days ago. a script can be written but they changed the code, so microsoft shoul resolve this bug before we make other "damages"...
