    Hello PacE, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Double check using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to make sure that all of your user folders are at their default location, and restore any found that are not back to see if that may help.

    OMG... after 12 hours and several very rude words... I think I've fixed it!!!

    All I want to do is keep my work in the Documents folder and then for it to upload to OneDrive as I change / add to it. My house got burgled and I lost all my work, hence the reason why IT have brought me a new laptop, but I want to know that if ever anything happens again my work will always be safe.

    So I just need to change the location of the Documents folder to OneDrive for it to do this?

    I really can't thank you enough Brink... it's been a crap week but you've made the weekend just that little bit better. Thank you!!

    That's great news PacE.

    You don't need to do anything to your Documents folder. Instead, you could just set to save your Documents to OneDrive by default.
