Change location of user data in WIndows 7
Posted on 2010-09-02
I transferred data from Windows XP to a new Windows 7 computer. The transfer failed at least once, and now the active user profiles are in folders such as c:\users\kids.000 instead of the preferred c:\users\kids. The folder c:\users\kids exists, but it isn't linked to the user account - the other folder is.
How do I change this? I know I can use Windows explorer to transfer data (albeit with difficulty since many of the files are system files), but how do I tell the user account to use the other folder.
