Accounts and schema's have a relationship. Your userX has schemaX; schemaX has synonyms pointing to One.table_1 and One.view_1 (without going into the discussion whether one stands for the account, or for the schema). One belongs to user1 (which is schema1). You cannot point to user4 'dynamically'.

Just drop the synonym, and re-create it while pointing to the other schema.

The other schema's being backups, I fail to see the point of this exercise. Do not touch your backup!
