comment How do I add my photo to my account in Outlook 2010?
I have Outlook 2010, and when I double click my name in an email (single click does nothing) it pops up my contact card. There is no "Open Contact" button or option anywhere.

comment How to bind old user's SID to new user to remain NTFS file ownership and permissions after freshly reinstall of Windows?
Ideally I'd just like to keep my <username> folder on a separate partition (the old Windows partition) and make that <username> folder the home folder for my user <username> of my new Windows.

comment How to bind old user's SID to new user to remain NTFS file ownership and permissions after freshly reinstall of Windows?
Well basically what I want to do is copy all the files from an old Windows C:\Users\username location to a new Windows C:\Users\username location so those files all belong to the new user (just migrating to a fresh Windows install basically, and wanting to keep my previous user's files). It's the same username in both the old and new. Will a simple copy of the files from one place to the other as admin do the trick? I'm curious to know if the SIDs of the files will change to the new user's SID because I'm using NTFS-3G to map the file SIDs to my Linux user.

So if I do this as admin and copy files from an old user location to the new user location does it set tge SUD of each file to tge new user?.

If two files exist, One.txt and ONE.txt, which file would "match first" if I supply one.txt? Are there rules on which will be the "first matching file"?

I don't have the environment to test that in right now. I only have OS X at the moment. Could you describe what happens? My first guess would be that Windows picks (perhaps inadvertently) which file to read/write by some criteria (e.g. lexical order with lower case taking precedence, or vice versa). Or does it not allow any file to be manipulated whatsoever?

I haven't yet. Once I boot back into Window I will... I share my Windows home folder with my Linux home folder. :D

Aha... and looking inside NTUSER.DAT I see references to my old location... Maybe I can just replace them with the new values...

Hmmmm.... So that guide basically says copy everything except Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, and Ntuser.ini. Seems like that is wherein the problem lies...

I did exactly like in the Windows 8 suggestion in your fir paragraph. So, in your last paragraph, do I have to move my folder back, then in the registry find every occurence of trusktr and change it back to the old value (somethingelse in my example) before I do the "fix a corrupted user profile" step?
