    "Users" Information Location

    Is it possible to move the entire "Users" directory from C drive to D drive and have it be recognized without doing anything special?
    I do a system image of my C drive regularly but my D drive is continuously backed up to a local NAS and I would like my user information backed up the same way.

    You can do part 2 of this tutorial Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums if that would help you.

    That looks like exactly what I'm looking for. I'm not going to have a chance to try it tonight but probably will tomorrow. Thanks so much for the reply!
