    I had my Documents folder loacated under something like C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\OneDrive .. I did not want the location to be in OneDrive, choosing the "properties" tab for the documents folder it gave me the error message that a file already exisits and could not move this one and access was denied… So I went into the user registry and made the appropriate changes as stated above, I restarted my computer and now I do not even have the "location" tab under the properties of the folder … and it is still in the wrong location under OneDrive .. my One drive is also completely unsynced…

    How to do this on Win10?
    I have 3 drives in my PC. SDD is C: and that is system drive. Also have two HDD, E: and F:.
    I moved my personal folders (pictures, documents…) to E: but that drive stoped working recently so now i want to change personal folders to F: and i got error: "The folder can't be moved here. Failed to build list of regular subdirectories under E:Pictures. The device is not ready"

    This works!

    I've accidentally merged two system folders on Win10 (3D Objects and Music), but using the Explorer's GUI, I was unable to separate them (if I moved one, the other moved to there as well). Then I used the first solution listed here, and it worked.
