Windows 10: Consistency between users and Users folders
Finnish but not finished
There are no potential or even imaginary problems in Sysprep procedure.
Not an offence, just a fact based on your previous posts: Your posts show that you don't even know how you created this FP user account, that you are not very familiar with creating / removing / renaming user accounts in Windows. Instructions given solve your issue and let you start from scratch, without losing your personal files and installed software.
If you do not know if user account FP exists or not, you'll find it out when following the instructions when it's time to create new initial admin account. If FP exists as an already existing username, you can't use that name.
Extract from step 9 in instructions in my previous post:
Please notice: when setting up your new admin user account as told in above tutorial you cannot use any existing username
In all honesty I have to admit that I lost all interest in this thread after reading the highlighted part in above quote. I will not help nor have I ever helped to mismanage a computer. I will unsubscribe after posting this post.
Sysprep when in on an existing system creates a new machine SID and resets some core Windows settings to defaults. It does not change Windows registry other than what's needed to register new SID both for the machine and initial admin user created during OOBE. It does not touch installed software, drivers, user data and such.
Advice: do as told in those simple instructions if you want a permanent solution to your issue. If continuing mismanaging your PC (no updates) is more important, continue trying to play with user accounts and forget the instructions.
A very sincere,
I gave up on the idea anyway -- I can manage without it.
But I suggest you educate yourself and FAST: FYI, there is much more risk from Windows update today and spying than from anything else. Do yourself a favor and read here thoroughly:
If you do you'll find out that it's Microsoft that mismanages user computers, I am just trying to keep mine working.

Sorry, I have no interest in news and tips for tinfoil hat brigade.
As I have no interest in your denigration of how I protect my computer from damage. It's up to you to ignore reality, but then don't dismiss others who choose not to.
Regarding the user name: The reason I was asking is because after I renamed the default user back to USER and there was NO user with FP name, the system would still not allow me to create a FP user.
Regarding SYSPREP: you did say that it "reset certain Windows settings to defaults", which is precisely what I was concerned with.
The general method to change ownership is not working
Please suggest some other method

Very odd. These look like bogus junction points (symbolic links) in my user directory. Got this after 10049 to 10061 update. Reverted back to 10049 and tried again, same. Clean install 10061 from ISO, same. Did not have this before on any...
