comment I renamed my user folder in Windows 8, and now my task bar shortcuts are gone. Why?
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?

I did exactly like in the Windows 8 suggestion in Maxx Daymon's answer.

Do you suggest I edit registry and change it all back to somethingelse before doing this?

@Ramhound I logged in as another user who has administrator privileges (after first signing out of my use in question).

Well I can log in just fine and all my Documents, Pictures, everything, are just fine in Explorer. I made sure to change the values in the registry to match my new user folder name, no errors when logging in (e.g. no "temporary profile" error).

comment How come git clean -Xi doesn't delete folders, only files?
@BlueBerry-vignesh4303 How does it not? I've updated my answer to be more verbose. Plus, if you notice, I've marked his answer as the accepted answer so he got all the credit.

@Kiwy For sure. Thanks for the insight! I'll have to test drive it for a while and see how it does. I did notice a slower ls -l in some directories. And yeah, I'll be sure to update with all the details. I'm thinking of putting up a Wiki page on archlinux.org too.

@Kiwy It's SSD so that will make up for the ntfs-3g performance loss. Also, I just booted into both Windows and Linux desktops, and my permissions and ownership seem to be just fine in both, with shared files!!. :D :D :D We'll see how it plays out...

@Bruno9779 I was thinking about that, but I'm not sure how I'd link between ext4 and NTFS, so it's visible in Windows (e.g. c:\Users\trusktr\.bashrc -> /home/trusktr/.bashrc, don't think it's possible).
