I'm unable to log into Windows 7 after moving the Users folder via symlink. I used the command prompt in System Recovery to move the folder.
F:\ is my SSD which I want to move from, while
C:\ Is the hard disk I want to move to.
I started by using robocopy to copy the entire users folder to another hard drive:
robocopy /copyall /mir /xj f:\Users c:\Users
Then I deleted the users folder:
rmdir /S /Q f:\Users
Then I used symlinks:
mklink /J f:\Users c:\Users
I checked that all was right by using the dir command in F:, and as expected it showed
When I try to log in to my only account, it shows:
The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
