    Help - W10 lost the user folder path. not possible to login


    I have an intel NUC, with a 120 Gb SSD and external 2To 2,5" HDD.
    When i installed W10, i followed this tutorial
    Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums - i only moved user folder to the HDD on D:\User\
    I set up autologin with netplwiz command.

    It all worked fine... until i decided to change the computer name today.
    I used the classic windows option : option 1 here Computer Name - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Now Windows cannot logon because it doesn"t find the user profile.
    I've tried to step back with the option 3 (command line) and other options such as recovery from systemp do not work.
    What can i do ?
    Thanks for your help.

    Solution : reboot as administrator + verify External drive letter + restore old name if necessary.
    In my case, external hdd moved from D:\ to E:\
