  • That's not a scripting issue at all. We can't possibly know your system configuration. You could try it in the following forums:

    Windows 10 General  or

    Windows 10 Installation, Setup, and Deployment

    Please read this first: This forum is for scripting questions rather than script requests.

    Also find scripts here: PowerShell Gallery or here: TechNet Gallery - resources for IT professionals.

    Learn PowerShell: Microsoft Virtual Academy - Getting Started with Microsoft PowerShell.

    Script requests: Microsoft Technet Script Center - Requests.

    Best regards,

  • Someone has "moved" the "Documents" folder to the Onedrive folder.  This is not a good idea.  Move it back tot the correct folder and just assign the local folder to replicate to OneDrive if they want all documents to be saved to OneDrive.

  • while the question is not programming/scripting related - the current's user profile resides in a 'public' area, that in itself (to me) constitutes a Powershell scripting problem...

    thanks for reading links...

  • there was no intentional 'move'.

    the install/configuration used all default values left when win10 was installed and automatically assigned the user Documents path to the OneDrive location. Even after removing OneDrive from the computer, changing the value of $Profile is necessary.  I do not care for OneDrive at all.

    Thank you.

  • None of this has anything to do with scripting.  It is an issue of deployment and configuration.  I recommend posting in a deployment forum or finding someone to help you with setups for your systems.

    There is no default deployment/installation that enables OneDrive and moves user folders.  Someone did this purposely somehow but it is not an issue for this forum.
