I have Microsoft Windows 7 x64 that is installed on an SSD C:. I have my other programs and my user profiles on a separate drive. I was cleaning the tower and forgot to attach the drive cable to the F:drive with the profiles. when i booted the PC it gave me a message and I just defaulted thru it without paying attention.

Obviously, it was telling me it couldn't find the profiles. When I could logon I realized i didn't have the drive plugged in. I then shut down the system, attached the drive but now I get the following error when trying to logon.

I can boot using safe mode into the default profile with is still on c:drive  and can access the F:drive and get to the files and user profiles.

I am able to log into the other my son's user profile thru windows logon and everything is fine.

The log in I want to use is set as backup. I'm assuming I need to get that changed to local.

System restore is turned off.

I have tried last known good config as well

Try this:

The steps are toward the end of the article.  The guy rambles on a bit, but I think this should work.  BTW, keep system restore on.  (just a tip)  ;-)

Good luck.  Please let me know if this works.

No, see it is already setup correctly in the registry with the different drive letter. There was a reason sys restore was turned off. Guess I need to find the article on how I set this up.

I need to figure out how to change user profile from BACKUP to LOCAL for that user.

Thanks.  I can't remember anything anymore because of Google (b/c I can always look it up).  However, experience still helps.  

Thanks for the points (It's like Whose Line?, lol)  I'm glad you found the fix.  :-)
