Googling resulted in copying the users folder to my desired destination while being in safe mode, and then making a junction to there from the original users fodler. Do you know another way? maybe more intuitive one?
That is the only way to do it.
Windows needs the folder to exist, at least logically, in the C:\Users\ directory and there are enough connections to that location that you cannot usually complete the move while logged into a full windows environment without causing some problems.
So you must move the folder while in safe mode or using a Live environment and create the junction (pointer file) that points to the new location so that once you load up the full environment again the computer will find all the information where it expects it to be.
