Multiple Documents folders on D: RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a second harddrive (D:) that has directories "User1" and "User2".  These directories hold documents for User1 and User2 (from an old XP machine).  As User1 and User2, I change the location of the "Documents" folder in C:/users/User1(2)/Documents to "D:\User1" and "D:\User2", respectively (by right clicking C:/users/User1(2)/Documents->Properties->Location).  Explorer now shows two folders named "Documents" on D (the folder names "User1" and "User2" have dissappeared).  Thus it isn't clear which one is associated with which user.  Is there any way to fix this?  If I open a command prompt and do a dir of D:, I still see "User1" and "User2" folders (i.e., no folder named "Documents").

    Thanks,

    Matt

  • Hi,

     

    Please note that when you change the directory, change the path from "C:\users\User1(2)\Documents" to "D:\User1(2)\Documents", but not "D:\User1(2)". Please correct the path.
