Windows 10 Quick Access Issue. The docfile has been corrupted

    Question

  • Hi.

    I can't see any pinned locations on quick access. When I try to pin something, a message appears saying:

    The docfile has been corrupted

    Is there any solution?

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 Community forum on Microsoft Community.

  • This worked.

    From command prompt as an administrator run this statement. Enter 'Y' when prompted to delete the files.

    del %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\*

    I found this on another thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/windows-10-quick-access-the-docfile-has-been/af4893bb-601e-4a52-b28d-334371d9b3f1?auth=1

  • This worked perfectly. Thank you! :)

    You can also type %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\ into the address bar in your File Explorer. It'll open that specific folder and you can select the files manually and delete them yourself. It will delete all the files except today's. Problem solved. I was able to pin things again to the Jumplist and Quick Access.
