I recently redirected the Documents folder from some profiles to a new mirrored disk. I went to Windows Scan 2 PDF and it gave me an error message that it can not access scanned document folders. As far as I could see, it was redirected to the parent folder.
It turns out that Windows 10 or Windows 11 does not pass permissions to all subfolders. In example: "E:\Users\MyDocuments\Scanned documents". Although I am in the admin group, only special permissions appear. So I've added myself to each parent folder as a user and Windows Scan 2 PDF now opens and I can save the documents as default to the redirected location. Thank you!
