Windows 10 conversion from Windows 8.1 folder name issues

My G580 Lenovo was purchased with Windows 8 as I recall.  I did the free upgrade to Windows 8.1, then later to Windows 10 when it became available. 


However my Onedrive was apparantly originally created using the folder name SkyDrive.  Now the internal folder name is still SkyDrive and not Onedrive.  Can this SkyDrive name be changed to Onedrive?


Also the C drive is named Windows8_OS (CSmiley Happy.  But I am running Windows 10 so this is troubling.  Can htis name be changed as well wo Windows10_OS (CSmiley Happy?

Re: Windows 10 conversion from Windows 8.1 folder name issues

Hi Anne1945  , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


It would be best if you create a system restore point first before proceeding .

Start with the C drive on renaming . Access one drive to rename it there before changing the same folder on your machine . Open a test file and /or access  other documents after restarting the machine . 


Update us how things go.
