I'd like to junction or hard-link my C:\Users[me]\ folder to a folder on my D: drive for space reasons. This has worked for me in the past, but after a recent reformat/reinstall of Win7 x64, Windows doesn't seem to recognize the junction, and boots me into a temporary user profile- claiming it can't find my files or something.
I've been following this guide to the letter: http://www.starkeith.net/coredump/2009/05/18/how-to-move-your-windows-user-profile-to-another-drive/
Specifically, using SafeMode and a Admin temporary user to move user directories. Since this is a new installation, moving the [me] folder around isn't much of an issue currently, since there's nothing but the Windows generated folders inside.
In Explorer, browsing to the junction does show the folder with the 'shortcut' link over it, and it links to the correct place on the D: drive.
What am I missing? Why won't Windows recognize this junction as the profile source?
