You want to clone a computer but for some reason the Profiles on this computer are on drive D? Are you looking at it from within Windows for from the Ghost console?

Sorry xman but I am still struggling. You want to clone a WIndows 7 computer but during the clone you want to move the profiles to drive D:?

That can't be done. If the profiles are on Drive C: on the source they will be on Drive C: on the clone. That is what a clone does. I have never tried it but you might (after it is cloned) be able to copy the profiles to drive D: and edit the registry point to the new profiles but it would be tricky. Why do you want the profiles on Drive D:?

This is going to be interesting. Open Regedit and traverse to HLKM>Software>Microsoft>Windows NT>Current Version>ProfileList

You will see where it is storing the profiles. Change the four entries from %SystemDrive% to D that will make windows look in D: for the profiles and create new profiles in D

If you want to try and keep existing profiles than look at the individual entries under Profile List and change the ProfileImagePath and replace %systemroot% with D than copy the existing profiles to the exact same place on Drive D:

Keeping the existing profiles might be a little tricky but at the very least any new profiles you make should show up on Drive D:

I am going to object. The solution I offered will work. The fact that the original poster has abandoned the question is kind of moot. The solution is there if he would try it and respond.
