    My Documents

    I am new to Windows 8 having just brought a new Desktop with Win 8 loaded.
    The 3TB HDD is sectioned into drive C Windows and drive D Data.
    Drive C is only 220GB in size so I wanted to move my libraries from C: /Users to D:
    I went into the properties of My Documents and moved the location to D:
    My Documents disappeared from C:/Users but did not appear in D:
    I then to copied My Music, My Picture and My Videos to D; successfully.
    I then tried to copy the Public Folder across but only Public Documents was successful.
    If I tried to copy Public Music across on its own it does not appear in drive D:
    Any idea what is going on?

    If you go to the Documents Library can you see your documents?

    Have a look at this tutorial:

Hello Since the last update I cannot use my Documents as I used to save them to flash drive. I tried not synching everything but they stay in Onedrive where I do not want them. It seems like Google's drive which I do not trust. Can I fix this? Thank you
