    Move User Profile by Windows Easy Transfer Wizard


    "Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1. This might be because the Users or Program Files folder is being redirected to another partition."

    By using the Customize feature of Windows Easy Transfer Wizard, I created a MIG transfer file, without selecting the user folders (such as Documents, Pictures or Video).

    If the MIG file is copied to the C: drive, will the User Profile be created on the C: drive, when Easy Transfer is run?

    I am guessing that the default User Folders will be created on the C drive, and then the locations can be changed to match the present physical location on my other partitions.

    Thank you, in advance.

    Wow, not a single response to this question. Is not Easy Transfer a standard feature of Windows?
