    relocate.xml file for new windows 10 computer, made on windows 7 compu


    I have been watching tutorials and searching everywhere. I am far from computer literate but know enough to get in trouble. My desktop and laptop are both running windows 7 ultimate and when I originally installed the OS I used the sysprep and relocate files to move my user files to my secondary D drive and am happy with how it went. Actually was surprised and proud of myself LOL.

    I am buying parts and plan on building a 4K video editing desktop and am researching and trying to get things prepped for the relocate on the new computer. It seems when I save the file from the tutorial it changes to this which is different than what I copied from the tutorial. Is this because I am doing it on a windows 7 computer? Confused, please help. I am 57 years old and not the brightest bulb in the string! Thanks in advance!

    Looks fine to me.

    If you put what you posted above in [CODE] your_text [/CODE] tags so you don't get word wrapping on the forum you get this :
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <FolderLocations>
    <ProfilesDirectory>D:\Users</ProfilesDirectory>
    </FolderLocations>
    </component>
    </settings>
    </unattend>
    The tutorial (Move Users Folder Location in Windows 10 | Tutorials) here suggests this :
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <FolderLocations>
    <ProfilesDirectory>D:\Users</ProfilesDirectory>
    </FolderLocations>
    </component>
    </settings>
    </unattend>
    Which is identical. It is just a text file - you can create it anywhere.

    If you copy/paste into notepad (as described in tutorial) make sure you do not have "Word Wrap" ticked. It will not make a difference to the file when you save it but will make it look the same.
