    upgrade to 1709 account bug


    User Account "philippe" points to C: \ Users \ philippe -> logical
    upgrade 1709
    User Account "philippe" points to C: \ Users \ philippe-h61mv-pc !!!!!!!!!!!

    Microsoft to create the new folder C: \ Users \ philippe-h61mv-pc during the upgrade

    C: \ Users \ philippe still exists with all data and settings

    C: \ Users \ philippe-h61mv-pc does not contain any transfer and software settings (edge, Firefox, Thunderbird ...)

    can we point the account "philippe" to C: \ Users \ philippe in the registry

    it seems to me that there was a solution on W7

    thanks for the answer this served me as a base to solve problem related to the upgrade to version 1709
    the following registry key has been modified by Microsoft
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList \ S-1-5-21-2053608035-1889310867-618153392-1000]
    "ProfileImagePath" = philippe-h61mv-pc
    I modified this registry key
    new "ProfileImagePath" = philippe -> correspondent C: \ Users \ philippe (1703)
    PC reboot
    I all my settings and data
