I followed this tutorial:

move user folder

And after restarting my pc and logging in, i get this error message:

"C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desk top refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location."

What did i possibly do wrong? And how can I fix this?

EDIT Some extra info, the drive letters changed after i logged on. When i was in recovery mode, my C drive was G and my D drive was K drive was H. Not sure if this is important.

Does C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop exist on your PC? – David Oct 25 '12 at 18:04
no the desktop isn't in systemprofile folder. – Yustme Oct 25 '12 at 18:32
Try making it then? – David Oct 25 '12 at 19:24
How do i do that? But what about the rest of the documents then? Didn't the mklink failed since it isn't the drive letter i made the link on? – Yustme Oct 25 '12 at 19:47
File > New Folder. This place doesn't look like it should hold any actual files. On Windows 7, Everything is stored in C:\Users\Username. – David Oct 25 '12 at 20:02
