This is an odd one, some clients were working for syncing these folders, but a few would not. I have tried running the client as administrator, but that does not make a difference.
Strangely the user had the deskop folder missing from view in C:/users/xxxx/ but was accessible if you typed in the address bar or in a command prompt. It might be related to onedrive or Adobe creative cloud. Both when deactivated there was still no ability to see the desktop folder from the user profile directory(C:/users/xxxxx/) either in explorer or command prompt.
These programs are pervasive and trying to get the user to not let them ravage their systems is difficult.
This user has not set up any backups to the desktop folder, because both did not have user files uploaded (Desktop is locally 6GB).
