I just used my normal Microsoft account to log into my new laptop. But as soon as I login into the laptop. I noticed My PC has the Documents and Pictures folder located into C:Users\andre\OneDrive rather than C:Users\andre.

Any way to get the Document and Picture folders back into C:Users\andre path.

I tried to relocate the two folders through the folder tab in the property window of the folders but states that a folder can't be relocated since a folder of the same name is already in there.




The Document and Pictures that are under "This PC" are both from OneDrive

The real Document and Pictures are shown in the main list


I want to get the real Document and Picture folders back under "This PC" and remove the 2 OneDrive folder Document and Pictures under "This PC"

Yes I tried that before posting here. The problem is that whenever I move the folder's location to it's default location, I get an error stating "that a folder is located in the same location that can't be relocated" for both Document and Picture Folders

The Document and Picture folder listed under "This PC" are actually from OneDrive = C:\Users\Andre\OneDrive

The local Document and Picture Folders is in the C:\Users\Andre

I want the local folders to pop back into "This PC" and the OneDrive Document and Picture Folders to go back to wherever they came from.




I think I'll just reformat the computer to what it was before the problem happened, but will it still be like this?

UPDATE: I reverted to my previous build and now I don't have the issue. Please close the thread
