User Folders for 2 different computers

Recommended Posts

I put my user folders in a cloud drive (haven't tried VW Cloud yet so I'm using One Drive) This way my work computer and my home computer can access the same preferences. I also keep my projects in there so I don't have to constantly point to my referenced file locations.

The problem is that the only place I can put my One Drive folder is on the C drive itself. Because the path after that is different for each computer. My work assigns me a different computer user name than I have at home.

This really isn't a problem, but it seems that the file that points to where the user folder is should not be kept in that same folder. User folder locations should be different for each machine, even though the content is the same when using a cloud drive.

I was tired of tweaking my workspaces at home and then having to remember to tweak the same thing at work. I finally figured out putting One Drive directly on the C drive, instead of its default location.

If I'm missing something, please tell me.
