Windows 8.1 - Cannot Unmerge File Explorer Libraries

Mar 30, 2014

I am moving my windows 8.1 libraries from C: to D:. I tried to move Documents to the root folder of D: which is empty during that time. It asked me if I want to move also my files to D:, I moved it. So, the next thing I did was also to move Pictures at the root folder of D: also. Then it prompted if I want to merge these to libraries, I hit yes. Now the problem is that I can't un-merge it anymore. Whatever I put in my 'Documents' lib also appears in 'Pictures' and vice versa. I tried to explore solutions like changing properties, well at first it will change but it reverts to one library again though they appear differently as 'Documents' and 'Pictures' libs.

I decided to restore default setting of these two libraries, but nothing happened. In 'Documents' library, the location is C:UsersIdeapadDocuments and upon checking the location of 'Pictures' library its C:UsersIdeapadDocuments also. When I change the location of 'Picture' library to C:UsersIdeapadPictures, the 'Documents' library also changes to C:UsersIdeapadPictures.

8.1 - Screwed Up Libraries And File Storage With 4 Multi HDD

Jul 24, 2014

I actually have 2 problems. One with the Windows tiles, and the other one with Explorer/Libraries.

- First of all, I start with the small problem. I booted my PC today, and to my surprise, my Windows tiles were gone. Only the Store, Onedrive, Explorer and the Desktop are there. The rest? Gone. Very weird, never had this before.

So that is question 1: How to restore the Windows tiles. It's weird they disappeared, I did nothing with the configuration or something else.

- Second, and this is the main thing.

I have a serious issue with the Explorer/Libraries. My PC has 3 HDD's and 1 SSD. The SSD is, obviously, the Windows drive. Nothing special. The other 3 are for mass storage.

Stock, Windows sets all on the C drive. Like user stuff, install paths, you know. Also the libraries, like Pictures, Videos, Documents and Music. This is the part where it goes wrong.

I don't wanna have all my Music, Pics and the rest on my C drive. Only my Windows installation... So, I put my libraries into the D drive. I made a My documents folder on the empty D drive, and changed the direction path of the libraries on the left to the new My documents map. This goes good, except for the Music map.

The Music map thinks he is Desktop. I've tried to tell him, he's not, but the folder isn't listening. Without jokes, this is a really weird thing.

I tried to re position, but the Desktop and Music folder are thinking they are each other. I don't know how to solve this. The other folders do work, no problem with those. Except for these two.

Bad thing is also, I thought, if I delete the map, and create a new one, maybe that'll work. Not. Instead, Windows decided to delete both maps, Desktop and Music, so now, my icons, and music is gone. It's really weird, as I said, it's happening only with these maps.

Any solution or trick for this? Maybe,I could try and get the whole 'Users' map, from the C drive to D, so it makes one whole?

Cannot Search In Computer Or In Libraries In File Explorer

Apr 18, 2013

I have a very strange issue which makes using Windows Search more difficult.

File Explorer opened to Computer or Libraries > No search. I can type whatever I want to search field, search simply does not start. From the net I found this issue being quite common when you have mapped network drives which are currently offline. This is not my case, when this issue first occurred a week or two ago I had no mapped network drives.

I can search normally all other locations, for instance if I am not sure on which hd a file is located I must search each HD individually as the Computer view search wont start.

Windows 8 Pro with MC x64, see specs for the hardware.

Maintenance :: File History Backup Data Not In Standard Libraries?

Feb 12, 2013

Take Screenshot And Save It As File?

Sep 29, 2014

In the past whenever I would press my Win-key and PrtScr-key, it would make a copy of my desktop and automatically save it to a folder. I'm not trying to copy it to the clipboard, Win has a feature that will allow you to make a copy of the sreenshot and save it to a particular folder called Screenshot.

Anyway, I just recently upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro w/Med Ctr. After which this has stopped working. I use this feature a lot.

Not sure if my image insert worked, but here's what I'm trying to get to work again. I am aware I can use the Sniping Tool, but it does not work the same.

Can't Save File To C - Despite Changing Ownership And Access

Jan 14, 2014

I am currently on 8.1. I can't figure out what else I have to do, to save a config file to the root of C. It's an old application, and that's where the config needs to go.

I am worried that the medicine is worse than the illness in this problem - all the messing around with ownership might have damaged my windows installation.

Who needs to be the owner of what, on C: for me to simply save a file there?

My user is already the owner, and it's an admin user. I propagated across C: and then added System and Trusted installer with Full admin access.

Yet i STILL cannot write to C: Getting message: Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client.

What more do I have to do, to write to my own c: drive on my own computer.....

Maintenance :: File History Won't Open / Start?

Jan 10, 2013

Running Windows 8 Pro x64 as a Domain User with full Admin privileges, I am unable to use File History. I cannot open/start the File History tool. When I attempt to click on it from the Control Panel, nothing happens. When I try running it from the Metro search tool, it switches to the desktop and nothing loads. I've also tried in the Action Center, under Maintenance, "File History is Off. Turn On." Clicking "Turn On" does nothing.

All other items under the Control Panel that I have tried open and work with no problems.

I also tried in a "clean boot". System file checker reported no errors.

I just noticed in Control Panel there is "Windows 7 File Recovery". If I launch that and try to set up a Windows 7-style backup, it seems to work. I suppose I could just use this older tool instead of the new File History, although I haven't researched the differences.

I have another machine with the same version of Windows 8, and I am able to launch File History with no problems. I click File History from control panel and am taken to another screen that allows me to enable it. No such screen on the problem machine. The only main difference is the working machine is a regular user account; whereas, the non working machine is a domain account
