  1. Window's game bar's capture folder has merged with the video folder. i haven't succeeded...


    I was attempting to move the captures folder, the folder where window's game bar recording function saves to, to a different drive. Unfortunately I failed to completely understand the instructions of "use File Explorer to move the Captures folder anywhere you want on your PC", and instead dragged and dropped, which then only copied, and then I deleted the original. It did not preserve game bar recording to it, and instead switched to my user videos folder. Which is a problem because videos is also a system folder.

    I have attempted to use other guides on un merging documents and downloads folders, as well as other combinations, to no avail. In my attempts I managed to rename videos to captures, and can't be renamed.

    I tried using registry editor to change an unnamed item that also directed to the videos folder that i suspected to be my captures folder, but it only reset itself after a restart.

    A method to revert my mistake without requiring a reinstallation of windows would be greatly appreciated. I do not have auxiliary drives to back up data and would have to reinstall dozens of large games on poor internet.

    :)

    Game Bar Captures Folder Missing

    I did exactly as this link shows, but redirecting to a slave drive's root.

    The difference is, I didn't create a new folder on the separate drive before clicking ok. Somehow that made the real Captures folder go into the abyss.

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/87523-move-location-game-dvr-captures-folder-windows-10-a.html

    The capture folder is now completely missing. It cannot be located, and every time I re-open the game bar now it has decided to place where captures are saved in a different odd place. It went from the root of the slave drive of where I tried to move the captures
    folder to, to the Videos folder, to the temp folder, and now to the system recovery partition. It's acting weird. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the game bar. No change.

    Xbox Game DVR: Unable to find captures?

    No, I am not able to access the original 'Captures' folder from the Videos folder in the C Drive as I moved it to a portable hard drive. I created a new 'Captures' folder in the C Drive, but the Game Bar doesn't want to recognize it as a new one, that's
    my issue. Is there a way to make the new folder a default location for new captures?

    Hey Z3N3K

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently experiencing difficulties with recording content.

    If you haven't already, I recommend that you review the
    Troubleshooting Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10
    article and see if some of these techniques work for you.

    Additionally, it would be worth trying to save your captures to a different location and see if that helps alleviate the message that states there is nothing to record.

    To see where your captures are saved, open Game bar and select the My captures folder, or press the
    Start button, choose Settings > Gaming >
    Captures. Press the Open folder button to see your captures in File Explorer.

    By default, game clips and screenshots are saved in your
    Videos folder (named Captures). The Captures folder can be moved to different places on your PC.

    There should also be a help link when you select Captures that says "How to save to a different folder".

    I hope this is of some use to you.

    Game dvr not saving clips?

    Hi TriedBasket635,

    By default, the video clips that you captured are saved to the Captures folder which is located in the Videos folder. Regarding your concern, it is possible that the video clips weren't captured successfully that's why it doesn't show up on the Captures
    folder. Can you tell us if you're getting the same issue if you record another game clips on your game? Also, is your Windows 10 updated?
