    Hey, hi all
    Have read almost all the replies and didn't find someone with a problem like mine.

    I've used this method 3 times now (last was 5 days ago) and in each I found a bug and don't know what could be.
    The bug is, it's not a big deal but... I'll like to get it fixed in some way, that some folders appear in english (my install is in Spanish (MX) 'cause now Cortana supports it ) and is only when I follow this tutorial, if I do a clean normal install all seems fine (just the one that at the C: drive instead of "Archivos de programa" it shows as "Program Files"

    As I said, it's not a big deal, if you know how to fix it, let me know, please. Also, great tutorial and you seem to be a really nice Admin 'cause all the time you spend answering peoples questions.

    When moving the User's personal folders

    • Documents
    • Favourites
    • Music
    • Pictures
    • Searches

    It still shoes them in the User's home directory correct? It is just that the files are stored elsewhere? Is there a way to completely remove the folders entirely? For example. I will never use the default ~/Music directory.

    Hello again Kari,
    I have used your relocation of user folders technique on both Win7 and Win10 with much success. Yesterday however, I ran into the first time that I think having my users folders on a separate physical drive may have caused a problem.
    I am using a software tool called MCEBuddy to rename and compress recorded TV shows. Recently I upgraded this software, which requires the user to uninstall the previous installation. The software is supposed to automatically write backup files to the user's home directory upon uninstall so that when s/he installs the new version it can find and apply all the previous settings. This useful feature did not work for me, as described in this discussion with the developer of MCEBuddy:
    MCEBuddy 2.x - updated - lost settings
    Can you think of a reason associated with relocating the user directory that might have caused this failure? Does maybe the %HOMEPATH% system variable point in the wrong place or something?
    Thanks for any thoughts or tips on this situation.
    Kieran

    Great tutorial - thought I would share my hair raising issue


    Great tutorial - Thanks.

    I came across a huge problem (possibly self inflicted) on my system which I resolved but I thought I'd share in case anyone else needed to avoid a small heart attack.

    So I followed the instructions as listed,

    First Heart Attack.

    My Users folder was in the region of 40gb in size on a 120gb (compressed) SSD, hence why I needed to make this change. Be prepared to wait, mine took over 2 hours once the windows loading screen came on, to complete the transfer. I'm assuming the system makes a lot of changes during the moving of the Users folder.

    During this period the HDD light was always active but there were a few moments that I thought something had gone drastically wrong. Luckily the Ryder Cup was on which therefore reduced the temptation to terminate the process, which would undoubtedly have been catastrophic.

    The Lesson - Be patient and don't panic if the HDD light is still active.

    Second Heart Attack
    So I returned after the humiliation of the Ryder Cup defeat (what a great Ryder Cup though) expecting to see the same stupid revolving windows icon, but to my surprise I was graced with a windows setup screen, PHEW!

    So I raced through the settings and I can't remember at any point a section for adding a new user. However was possibly an oversight on my own part in the rush to get done. Anyway, the system restarted and I was faced with a login screen with no users on it, my poor heart once again began to strain as I tried to log in as an administrator / old account / made up account, as none of these worked began entering the emergency response number into my mobile phone in preparation of the inevitable cardiac arrest.

    Instead of panicking further I retired to bed and decided to tackle the problem in the morning.

    Wakey Wakey
    So I'm up, sorting the kids for school, my heart can't take much more, and I realise that getting into safe mode would surely be the way forward but I've never seen the option to get into safe mode in Windows 10 unless actually logged in. I've tapped F8 F5, all of them to no avail.

    Introducing Google....

    Search - 'disabled a windows 10 user account. I'm locked out'

    found this
    https://appuals.com/account-has-been-disabled-please-see-your-system-administrator/

    The folks at Microsoft know just how much of a goof the average Windows 10 user can be, which is why all copies of Windows 10 have a hidden account named Administrator that has administrative privileges. In the event that something happens to your primary Windows 10 account, you can lean on this hidden Administrator account and create a new account with administrative privileges for yourself using this account. The hidden Administrator account is only accessible when a computer is in safe mode.
    At the sign-in screen, hold down the Shift key on your keyboard and click on the Power button located at the bottom of the screen. From the menu that pops up, click on Restart, all while holding down the Shift.

    Only let go of the Shift key when the Advanced Recovery Options menu appears.
    In the Advanced Recovery Options menu, click on Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup settings > Restart. When your computer restarts and you are greeted with a blue screen with a horde of different options, press the numerical key on your keyboard that corresponds with the Enable Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    When your computer boots up, you will be able to see the hidden Administrator Log into it.
    Open the Start Menu, type cmd into the Search bar and click on the search result titled cmd to open a Command Prompt.

    Once you are in here, all becomes easy. Don't follow the rest of the instructions on the link as the are for a different purpose but instead directly activate your accounts you previously deactivated;

    net user <accountname> /active:yes

    Do this for each one and then simply close the cmd box and the system should restart.

    On restart everything works perfectly and the user folder is in the new location.

    If this saves a single person from the nightmare of thinking you could have lost all your work, pictures, porn (joking) etc then I'm glad to help. If it doesn't help anybody then take this as me celebrating my my newly found low blood pressure.
