Janet Leonder redirect stopped working on Win 7 HP machine
Posted on 2014-02-20
A custormer has a ASUS G75 gaming notebook with space for two disk drives.
A year ago I uppgraded the system drive c: to a 256 GB SSD and redirected all user folders to another drive e:.
It worked fine until a while ago when the customer "lost" all his personal files.
The files are still sitting on the e: drive and can be accessed by navigating there.
After alloving hidden and system files to show in explorer I took a look at the now visible shortcuts to my documents and other personal folders. I also looked at the shortcut to one folder that had not been redirected.
The non-redirected folder showed the proper target folder in properties, while the target in the redirected folder properties was blank.
Obviously something happened in the registry.
How do I get the proper target in place again. I suppose there is a registry entry somwhere that controls the redirection?
I should also mention that apart from this, the machine works flawlessly. There is nothing worng with the physical disk structure.
Looking forward to your expert solution.
