where are these instructions? the latest method for doing so.
some time ago I used this method to move user folder to another partition in win 8.1:
1. reboot with win DVD and using cmd move the user folder to another patition
2. delete the default user folder on C: and make a symbolic link to the new location
3. go back to windows
The problem after doing so is this:
When you use windows's search to find stuff located in your user folder it won't find anything, and also you won't be able to change some folders that are in the indexing options part (which are being indexed) because of this folder movement.
also there is another problem: the speed of the windows search will decrease.
my question is this:
does your method of using audit mode solve those problems?
Please do not send a visitor or private message to me after posting. I will follow my own tutorial threads and response when and as fast as I can to each post. A message to me does not speed up my response.
Of course I have no right to tell to anyone how to read tutorials, so I will only tell how I check a tutorial when I need help in something: I first read the tutorial itself, then if there's something not clear enough I will browse the thread fast through checking if my concerns have already been handled. When the fast browsing through the pages still does not answer my questions, I check the posts at the end of the tutorial from past few days or so.
When still no answer, I will post my questions in the tutorial thread.
That being said, the quotes below are from this same thread from yesterday and earlier today and should answer your question:
Thank you for answering my questions so quickly. Please forgive me but I still have questions. This SYSPREP procedure is something new to me.
My C dirve does not have sufficent space for me to move back even part of the D:\Users directory to C:\Users. So on Windows 7, I remove the Junction of C:\Users ==> D:\Users, then logon some other Admin ID and Window 7 creates a new c:\Users. I can then upgrade to Windows 10.
Now I am on Windows 10 and I will attempt this SYSPREP procedure. My question is, should the D: drive be empty, or at least not have a d:\Users directory present, or is it ok to have a D:\Users directory in it from Windows 7? I looked for this question but I must have missed the answer.
I have a new question:
- how can we move user profiles from one pc to another pc (consider that they are running the same version of windows).
is it just a copy and paste?
I want to back up my user profile and re use it when I reinstall windows. but somewhere here I read that that is not that easy because windows will know that this user profile is not for the current windows. what is the solution? which files should we edit so that it will work?
- I have windows 10, and have a user named x and the data are in: c:\users\x
I want to have the same exact settings of user x in a new windows 10, so is it enough to create a new user account named x in the new OS and then copy the old x user directory to the new windows c:\users\ dir?
