I seem to have encountered something weird. I know that the two folders,
this pc and
user\name, are the same, and
C:\user\name\Documents is just the path to
documents. But when I open up
documents via it's path, the folder is empty.
However, when I click on
documents in the sidebar of File Explorer, all my files are there.
What is happening here? I found this is affected the Desktop and Photos folder when I try to access them via their path.
Update: I went into the registry and returned all of the files affected by onedrive to their original %USERPROFILE% values. After I took two screenshots and noticed they weren't going to my OneDrive folder but the original folder on my computer. it seems File Explorer is still routing me to the Onedrive folders. How do I get explorer to route me to the original folders?
