    look up work folders
    To add the new Work Folders, head to the Charms menu, click search and type “work folders” then click the first of the two options that appear. Note that I am using Windows 8.1 Pro, and could find no documentation on the feature in the consumer release of the OS.
    Files placed inside this folder get automatically synced in the background similar to SkyDrive or Dropbox.

    I see no mention of moving a User Profile (not User Folders) to the "Work Folders".

    Windows 8.1

    The first thing I did after install 8.1 proper was move my folders to the other drive. And then I immediately started having problems.

    I restored it from a restore point, but I kept having problems. So did a(nother) fresh install.
