I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit if it makes any difference),
and I would like to safely migrate
My (home) network is a mix of Windows, and *nix boxes, and I don't have a Windows domain of any vintage, or even a Samba server running.
I have searched the WWW for a solution - and encountered many dodgy registry hacks with "no warranty" disclaimers attached.
(The thing is, I am kinda of attached to that data and I don't want to loose it just yet. Yes, I have taken a backup.)
From SF I learnt that Folder Redirection might offer a solution.
However, Microsoft TechNet suggests that I might need to use the Group Policy Management Console. (Now the article applies to Windows Server 2008 - so I guess this might be something to do with Windows domains right?)
Now, I really don't want to mess with Windows domains, or "anytime upgrades" to Win 7 Professional. So finally here is my question:
On Windows 7 Home Premium 64, without any Windows domains or Samba servers running, is there a safe way to migrate
(Logging off of the machine for a few hours is completely OK.)
