C: Local Disk - User Folder Files

Go to solution Solved by GoodBytes,

Don't move the user folder to another drive. Instead move the subfolders: (Document, Music, Downloads, etc.), which is fully supported by Microsoft (Right-click -> Properties -> Location tab).

The problem has to do with the fact that you want your setup to follow Microsoft developer documentation, which developers uses. If you do things differently, like say, change the drive letter of Windows from C:\ to A:\, then you are asking for potentially HUGE problem with software, and Windows itself.

If it works for you great, but you can't recommend it, nor complain if you have problems.

huh, strange.  I've been doing that for years and have upgraded from 7 to 10, and also installed the November update on 10 and never had any issues ever

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.

I move my main user profile folders and have been doing it for years. Not only in my home system but even in enterprise situations where you want roaming profiles/Profile redirection (especially important in virtual desktop solutions). I dont believe a word of this story and nether should you.

Oh... that's actually what I've been doing.  Didn't know you could actually move the whole user folder itself.   Kind of tempted now... :P

Good, don't.

You are not the first, and won't be the last to have problems, and face a re-install, and need another PC to plug the HDD/SSD in and backup all your stuff, and all that headache.
