    SSD System + HDD User ~ Linked folder not work with Windows 10 anymore


    Hello.

    SSDs are mostly to small.
    And my profile-folder is mostly to big and to heavy usage for a SSD.

    So I just started to link/junction my profile-polder to my second Disk, a HDD with some TB. Enought to work. :-)

    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.16299.19]
    (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation.
    
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>C:
    
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd \Users
    
    [ Now I use FastCopy to Clone my Data-Profile from my SSD to HDD with all permission Setting (ACL). ]
    
    C:\Users>ren Data Data-orginal
    
    C:\Users>junction Data Z:\Users\Data
    
    Junction v1.07 - Creates and lists directory links

    Created: C:\Users\Data
    Targetted at: Z:\Users\Data
    
    C:\Users>
    But the problem is: this profile not work. After log-in, the taskbar and startmenu get into stuck. Startmenu not open and after some minutes, windows (little blue dialog) force me to logoff again.

    When I look into the task manager, I see backgroundTaskHost.exe constantly restarting. (endless, every second)

    I never had this problem before.

    Any idea why I get this problem now? And how I can maybe prevent this stuck/hang/restarting-bug.

    At this time there is only one alternative: to link every folder in profile to hdd-folder. But that is a lot administrative work and I can't link the AppData folder (If I link this folder > restart-bug start again). A folder who have a lot of write-operation and so very heavy use my SSD. (Especialy while browsing or temp-file-operation who also often go into a lot of GBs)

    And I use also a profile on SSD (root-Account) for setup or upgrades of Windows so I can also remove the HDD without problem.

    I need one profile only on HDD, not all of them.

    It's a pitty. It was soooo easy in the past. I'm more and more sure, it's just contana or the index-search of windows.

    Maybe I should try to disable both together?



    -- Update --

    I found this way now... How To | How To Move A User Profile To Another Drive or Partition In Windows - YouTube
    ...and will try it soon, too. Maybe that helps to solves this problem.

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    ProfilesDirectory > %SystemDrive%\Users

    It's just a pitty that MS have so much incompatibility Linked Folders. I hope a lot, they discontinue there C:\ some day and go the UNIX-Way too.
