    Use account missing some folders


    Hi guys,

    I'm not sure if you guys know about that, but since i installed windows10 i noticed that not all of the user's folders are available in the user folder, What i can only find is (Contacts, Favorites, Links, Saved Games, Searches), In order to be able to see the full folders list i have to go the full dir (C:\Users\User Name).

    So, no one noticed that? Or is it only happening for me?

    Might be a glitch on your end, I'm showing all 11 of mine, (including the OneDrive folder).

    Hi Edwin, Thanks for your reply, Do you know how to fix it then?, I had a fresh installation a couple of times, and noticed that it's always like that, maybe it's because i'm using a local account?

    Can you upload a screenshot with the navigation pane expanded and the folder in question opened?

    Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    Hi davidhk, Thanks for your reply, Would that "dism" command remove any of my apps or settings?, And if i posted one of those reports would you be able to help me ?

    1. You are supposed to use sfc /scannow first.
    If and only if it comes back with " found corrupt files but unable to repair ", THEN you use the dism command. Not before.

    2. No, dism will not remove any of your apps and settings. It is just restoring the system.

    3. I am no expert. I can only help to a certain extent.
    But there are many members with far more superior knowledge. They will chip in and help you.
