Re: New Source Record

It seems to have kept 1881 in the drop-down list so I guess there seems no way to get rid of it from the list, Jane?
I forgot about the FT Analyser, thanks for reminding me, Brian.

New Source Record

Recently (being a member of Lost Cousins) I tried to make a list of people on my tree who were on the 1881 census. I looked at the list function and put in 1881 but it gave me every census, so not a lot of use. However now when I enter a new source for a person, the New Source Record in Type shows 1...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I did get such a warning message but went ahead as you told me to. So best for us both I guess to leave it as it is, Thank you very much for at least getting my One Drive and Google Drive working properly. Maybe my pc is just odd but it works OK as it is.

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Yes I did all that you instructed and restarted the pc but nothing changed.
Maybe it's best to abandon it?

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I followed your instructions exactly. I had to create User files for Desktop and 3D Objects. However, nothing seems to have changed see attachments:

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

My pc must be different to yours Mike? I don't have a magnifying glass on the left of my taskbar? However, I did it from the Start search and found it and have turned on protection for my K drive as the others C & E were already protected. Created restore point as you said. :mrgreen:

I've never understood the internal workings of Windows having never worked in the computer industry or as a programmer or analyst.

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I didn't get that far; I did what you said about at 10.47 13/6. I've managed to get my Download Folder back by changing the location so I now send you a screenshot of My Pc as it is now. The 2 Documents Folders seem to have the same items in them but in reverse order from one to the other? The 2 Dow...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Something odd has happened, This PC now shows 2 x 3D objects, 2 x Documents, My Music, My Pictures, and Videos. I can't find my Downloads and am unable to save anything to the Download folder as it's not there? I can't even save a screenshot?! :?: :?: :?: :?: My actual desktop shows the normal icons...

Mike, don't pull your hair out! I've done that and the Desktop is now back to normal, plus I've got a Desktop icon on the Desktop-not that much is in it?

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

If that is the Desktop, it seems to hold most if not all of my documents and programs? Would it be simpler to set up a new Desktop?

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Another thing that confuses me is that down the left hand side of the file explorer it seems to show duplicated drives-should that be so? See screenshot.

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I must have moved the Desktop to E\: Users which is where I found it eventually but without a blue button. I set up the new folder as E:\Desktop as you suggested and moved it to the new folder where it is now. However, the Desktop remains as before so I've right-clicked on it so as not to show any i...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Yes, Downloads was on the E drive.
Now for some unknown reason to me, my desktop screen is covered in my documents, folders which I don't want there?

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Have done as you suggested Mike with the folders, there were only 2 on C, 3D objects-whatever they are and Desktop. I know that most Browsers have a 'choose location for downloads' and I generally use it but sometimes forget when I change browsers-currently using Edge. I'll give the duplicate list a...

I have configured the Storage Sense as per your suggestions, 60 days for Temporary files, and Download folder-is that what you meant as these are the only ones I have. Storage Sense is On. The problem with new downloads is that I'm never sure whether the download site uses C as the default because i...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Hi Mike, I'm not keeping notes but presumably, I can refer to this topic here in the future?
I have got Settings in my taskbar so easy to find storage and screenshot here. There are no other categories below Documents that have anything in them.

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Thank you, Mike, mine was 7766 on C and so I've made all 3 drives including my portable 2000MB and as you say if I delete something larger as I do with the portable drive backups then it asks if I really want to delete it without going to the recycle bin-I just tried it. My C Drive is now at 53.3GB ...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

Thank you Mike, I carried out those instructions too and all are done as you said. In fact, I had 'my photos' on there but that included all my ft photos so I split it into 2 and let One Drive hold my 'normal photos' whilst I guess GD holds most of my ft photos with FH?

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I'm not ignoring you Mike. I looked at settings and it says as you said but when I log in I've a registered hotmail account and password so am somewhat confused? It would be nice if Microsoft used that name rather than Live?
