Issue with Redirected Pictures Folder

Hi,

A curious thing - transferring a profile off an amazingly old and ugly computer with multiple hard drives. Machine was running W10/1903.

Pictures folder was redirected to the g: drive. I assumed that Fabs AB would just pull that down, but instead it just copied the unused C:\ drive Pictures folder and missed the 75GB of photos. In Windows explorer I see two entries for Pictures - one the default directory and then the redirected one. THis looks odd to me and I am wondering if you might have any idea whats going on?

Best Regards

Re: Issue with Redirected Pictures Folder

It's designed to focus on declared folder. In this case, pictures are in two places and the program got a bit lost and just focused on the default one. It's far better to fully redirect the folder than adding another one to the same library.
