    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    @Kari A few other questions please. It wasn't clear to me why the sysprep wasn't needed. Is it because the Win 10upgrade install will leave things as they are or is there an option to specify where the User/Documents folders are to be placed? If it is the former then if the upgrade doesn't...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    @Kari Thank you. I wish I saw your message a bit earlier. I spent hours online (multiple times) and on the phone attempting to get a straight answer whether or not is was necessary to do a sysprep as part of the W10 upgrade so that the Documents/User folders are recognized when they are on...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    @Kari Thank you for responding. Part of the reason for my not wanting to do an upgrade is that I had an app that was not yet updated/tested on Win 10. That issue has been resolved. So at this time I am leaning towards doing the 8.1 to 10 upgrade. According to the above quote I can keep my...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    @Kari Thank you for your reply. I really didn't think the sysprep would do much but needed to check. Another question if you don't mind. I've been working with MS on this with the hopes to avoid a reinstall. The first thing was to explore the possibility of refreshing .Net 3.5, like I was...

    .Net Framework 3.5 uninstall/reinstall for 8.1 Pro

    Hello: I have an application that uses .Net 3.5 that has been failing. The vendor has spent the last several weeks attempting to determine the cause. According to their tech support and development people this problem is only occurring on my PC. I've been using the software for years and...

    Redo of a sysprep @Kari Hi Kari: A couple of months ago you helped me do a Sysprep on my Windows 8.1 system which worked fine I am having a problem with a specific application and the vendor has exhausted his resources attempting to solve it and is recommending a reinstall of the OS as he...

    Only one application goes into Not Responding

    Hello: I have a custom built PC (about 3 months ago) running Windows 8.1 Pro with Gen 5 Intel chip (almost top of the line) with 32Gb and an SSD drive. I have one application that frequently, but not always, goes into a Not Responding mode and only in a very specific circumstance. Allow me...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Hi Kari: Thought I would take the opportunity to give you an update. The entire process worked flawlessly, with the exception of one very minor exception which was easily resolved. I thought I should give you the feedback in the event that what I experienced was common enough for you to...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Nothing wrong with your English Kari, my attempts at a second language should be half as good, in fact maybe my English should be as good. I put that in there because I recalled reading somewhere that the distribution media was needed even when the process was performed on an installed version...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Hi Kari: Well, after all this time the vendor's tech support finally got back to me and they will not do the process. However, if I do it they will still honor my 5 year support agreement, which is what I was most concerned about. So I will undertake it myself following your instructions...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Thanks Kari. From the sounds of it I do not need to be concerned about fixing this before running the process to the move the profile folders off the SSD, and should I be anal enough to want to make things "pretty" I can do it afterwards.

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Been there, done that. After over 40 years in IT (on hardware that has now been designated as "dinosaurs" and software that is obsolete, archaic, crude, ...) I have learned something, albeit now mostly out of self-preservation as the years went by. It seems that most of what I could keep in...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Thank you Kari, I did read it and I am convinced that MS would not have a problem supporting a system (if asked, which I shutter at ever thinking I need to do) that was customized using this method. Clearly this is a customization using tools and the process provided by MS that will not effect...

    User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

    Hello Kari: Thank you for posting this process however, I do have a question or two. I recently purchase a custom built computer and the vendor will provide 5 years of technical support. This PC has an SSD drive and a 1Tbyte regular drive. Windows 8.1 was installed solely on the SSD drive...
