Default Re: Changing profiles folder from C:\Users

I have tested the xml file under Virtual PC 2007 and it works!!!, I have created a couple of virtual drives and profiles were stored on disk D: with the folder name I have chosen. The installation didn't see the xml file until I saved it as UTF-8 instead of plain ASCII, then it worked perfectly. The entire Users and Program Data folders are now on drive D: so I can format C: without losing any of my data or program data.

After boot I have connected to Windows Update and it got a couple of updates that have installed with no problems, so it looks like those compatibility problems only affect Vista, and I have found a link (but lost it somehow) saying that this was fixed by a MS hotfix.

Will do more testing, I will reinstall 7 again formatting OS drive to see if there are any problems in re-using the user folder on D: drive.

So far so good, will let you know if I find any problems
