Mount second drive as c:/Users in Windows 7

I just finished my first build. I'm using a 60GB SSD for my programs and operating system. My goal is to mount my 500GB HDD as c:/Users so all media and documents go straight to it.

I already tried these instructions, but that only made me unable to log in to my user accounts...

  • Where did you find these instructions? – nhinkle Dec 3 '11 at 4:53

    would'nt it be better in terms of performance to just put the actual documents/downloads/music folders on the 500gb disk but keep appdata etc on the ssd? – stijn Dec 3 '11 at 8:48

Here are a couple of pages I found that discuss this:



  • The second link is where I'd go for this - using the Sysinternals Junction command to create junction points for the folders you want to redirect (I've done this with folders such as SoftwareDistribution for the Windows updates, Anti-virus definition updates, Backup logs/databases etc). – misterjaytee Dec 3 '11 at 8:26
  • serverfault.com/questions/8187/… ..... I found this as well (the easiest and recommended way) but it says I will still have the users folder in place. I tested it on a picture. I placed the picture on my HDD and deleted it on my SSD (Users folders). It was still on my HDD. Maybe I will do that instead of the hard and risky way. I'm definitely not a pro at all of this as it is my first build. – b.carroll Dec 3 '11 at 14:16
