Question

Reason NOT to move entire C:\Users\(myusername) to D ?

Hi!

Anyone know of a reason NOT to move my entire C:\Users\(myusername) profile from its default location in C drive to D drive ?

I'm talking the entire User profile.

Is there a reason NOT to do this?

Thanks!

Only one reason I know of.

Why? Because the owner has no backup of their home folder. If the move fails they could lose it all.

Answer
Move

Anytime you start playing around with default locations where windows puts things could create a problem.

Make a complete system backup and then move what you want.

If things go wacko just spin in your backup and you should be back to where it functions again.
