New Win10 user here coming from XP.
“For backward compatibility, the old locations have junction points that point to the new locations. For example, C:\Documents and Settings is now a junction point that points to C:\Users.”
From a DOS prompt* you can CD to c:\Documents and Settings. If you do a DIR from there you get no files. If it links to C:\Users then why doesn’t the DIR display what is in C:\Users?
*can’t even get to it in File Explorer (and to even see it you have to enable displaying hidden items)
