How can I backup windows special folders so I can see the correct folder name? 

When I look at the backup folder in Windows Explorer I just see folders called "Documents", "Desktop" etc. If I open a command prompt and look I see the correct name e.g.
"Documents 2019-02-21 18;40;45 (Full)"

I solved this once a long time ago - something to do with thumbs.db or a .ini file - but I can't remember what I did...

The name of the directory is correct, but explorer doesn't show it. Delete the hidden file desktop.ini  and add it to the list of exclude files.
