    attrib +h +r "D:\Users\Public\Desktop"
    attrib +r "D:\Users\Public\Documents"
    attrib +r "D:\Users\Public\Downloads"
    attrib +h +r "D:\Users\Public\Libraries"
    attrib +r "D:\Users\Public\Music"
    attrib +r "D:\Users\Public\Pictures"
    attrib +r "D:\Users\Public\Videos"

    localized names will be back, even in the english version. note: this patch corrects only \users\public folder and subfolders.
    i have other things missing localized texts.... waiting for a correction and trying to write a script to identify the folders that are missing the original flags...
    Making these folders read only makes them unable to be written to, no?

       SH        C:\users\public\AccountPictures\desktop.ini
       SH        C:\users\public\Desktop\desktop.ini

    EDIT: My mistake, those in red I thought were missing from your list are only junctions so ignore this post. Good find.

    Gotchya,

    Copied all lines into a .cmd batch file and ran it with elevated privileges, and all is well again.

    Thanks for the tip

    definitive workaround to resolve the bug.

    i lost tons of hours trying from an AU iso, but... damn, was so obvious

    - install november update
    - relocate (during installation or after as you prefer)
    - install anniversary update
    - done

    at the moment, i don't see any difference compared to a clean install using an AU iso. i'll use it for a while and, finally, migrate all pcs...

    win10

    I am wanting to use part 2 in moving the User Directory to drive U:\, as described in the initial post..
    My win10 system is the free upgrade from win7 to win10, Version 10.0.14393.
    Where do I find the install.wim file? I can not find it C:\ nor in the iso backup file I created during the upgrade?

    You do not need it, see for instance this post: Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Page 82 - Windows 10 Forums

    Sysprepping an existing Windows installation (Method Two in tutorial), especially an upgraded system sometimes fails. That's why I recommend using this method in a clean, fresh install only (Method One in tutorial). That being said, all of you going for Method Two: Do not forget to create a full backup before proceeding; if you come back here telling it failed, what now, my first answer will be to restore the backup and try again correcting errors you made in the first try.

    I have a brand-new Dell Vostro, with Win 10 Pro.
    .
    Is there a similar tutorial for the situation where Windows is already installed?

    I would like to move my "Users" folder to E.

    If that's not possible (or too risky for a non-techie), the next choice would be to move my Downloads folder to E, to free up space on C.

    I've already moved "Documents" to E, using: Right-click on Documents > Properties > Location tab

    If there's a better method, I can move Documents back to C, and start again :-)

    Thanks.
