comment What is the default expected behavior when Windows encounters two files with the same name but different capitalization in an NTFS partition?
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?

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.
