I'm a little confused why it's looks like roaming profiles are enabled, but they are not.
Profile Status in 'User Profiles' and WMIC say "Local", yet there's a
Roaming folder (aka
%appdata%) housing a third of my appdata.
Here is an image of the User Profiles screen and a list of profiles folders:
This is on two laptops (Windows 7 Home & Windows 10 Home), both recently formatted. There's no workgroup or file sharing between them. Could it be because I used the same @hotmail Microsoft Account when creating Users on both computers? Is there any advantage to splitting up my data like this?
Googling for an answer shows me how to add/remove roaming profiles, but not about data being stored there when I haven't instructed Windows to do so.
An explanation or links to related reading would be appreciated... Thanks!
*EDIT: Mis-capitalized one folder name.
thanks for the simple link -- I was overthinking, thinking "Roaming" must have already "Roamed" somewhere, as opposed to organizing data in case of "future roaming!"
