I have an SSD B and a HD C. My windows installation is on B.

I originally had my entire user folder symlinked onto C. I wanted faster access to my appdata folder so I logged onto my admin account in safe-mode, copied the entire appdata folder back into a new actual user folder on B.

I then symlinked all the folders inside the user folder on C, into the new actual user folder on B containing my actual appdata folder in its original location windows dictates it to be.

I re-log onto my user profile after restarting, it gives me a temporary profile, what has gone wrong?

  • Before you continue; You do understand while its possible to move these folders, its actually not supported, right? – Ramhound Dec 5 '14 at 17:33
  • Supported by what? you understand I have already successfully symlinked the entire user folder so that it isn't in its original location, let alone drive? do the folders inside the user folder not follow the same rules? – Robert Watson Dec 5 '14 at 17:48
