    You can still use the Windows 7 Back up and Restore Tool in Windows 10. This tool also lets you create back ups on to a separate drive on your computer. I also have the Backup and Restore Windows 7 in Control Panel i'm using Windows 10 version 1703.

    Windows 10, version 1607 (also known as the Anniversary Update), you are using old version of Windows 10 newest version is 1709 Windows 10 Fall Creator Update.


    Is the ProgramData folder empty?

    djoatmeal,

    After you and FreeBooter did such a heavy work getting your system to working state again, may I suggest making an Image of your system disk. Macrium reflect is free for personal usage and used by many here.

    With Macrium also make a bootable rescue drive, with which you can boot and recover all system drive if anything fails. Other great feature is, that you can mount your backup and copy any file or folder you want..

    Another great feature is its boot repair (when booting from its USB drive). It is most of the times more successful than procedure you've done today (less possibilities to type something wrong).

    All this together gives you very simple option to install clean version of Windows, having old drive in backup image with every file you may need readily available ...

    This is something I would probably go for, if my system would be so heavily damaged. (I'm still admiring what you guys did today) :) With fresh ISO from MS

    I think i know why ProgramData folder not moved its hidden folder which Move command does not work with.


    You need to boot your computer into Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

    Please execute following commands:


    Code:
    Cd /d  E:\Windows.old
    
    attrib -s -h ProgramData
    
    move /y ProgramData  E:\

    That started to do something but we ran out of disk space. I suspect I now know where a lot of the drive space went. BOINC is part of the SETI at home project family and clearly it's using lots of space for climate prediction studies. I'll go delete that data and see if that make enough space to try again.
