I've recently installed Windows 8 on my system and configured it to dual boot with Windows 7 I already had. Now I'm wondering there is a way to tell windows I want both my user accounts in each of Windows instances to share same location as their home folder?
So far I've tried changing home folder location, which didn't provide satisfying results. since I have to change location of documents, videos, etc. one by one. While what I was looking for was to change the environment variable %HOME%.
I can also try creating symlink, using mklink. with this method everything will work as expected but with one minor issue, my Win8 user doesn't have privileges to edit anything in Win7 home folder. it's as simple as the user defined in win7 in unknown for Win8 and vise versa, so simply giving extra privileges to the home folder won't solve anything. I need to somehow tell windows these users are exactly the same.
