How to set up D drive for user data

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My first time using a D drive for user data.  My C: drive has a /users, and points to Don and Public, both on C: drive.  But I put all my user folders and files on the D drive (2 TB) which I think is where it belongs.  But the C:/users doesn't point to where my data is.  Plus, Idrive does my backup, but tells me that there is something like 25,000 files that it could not back up.  How should this be set up?

You have only ONE set of users folders and the default is for them to be stored on the same drive as the OS, usually in C:\users\<username|\documents ... and the like.


If you created a SECOND set of folders on D for your use, the set on C: would not have any knowledge of those.


Here is information on how to MOVE your "users" folders to a different drive from C:


As to the iDrive issue, we have no way of debugging issues with applications.  You will have to contact the application vendor for assistance.
