Implications of Changing Directory for User Settings
I have an old Vista computer that is now dead. Fortunately I have an image backup. I have ordered a new PC from Vision Computers which will have the Windows 7 OS. I want to load in all of my docs and settings from the "dead" machine but move them to a directory different from C where the OS is located.
(1) I have the process as outlined in this forum. Can I simply "copy" the files into the new directory and will they be accessed once I install the operating programs for the User?
(2) What implications are there for changing the directory? I will continue to have an administrator ID on C. My plan is to logon to another ID, with similar privileges as administrator, which will be my primary ID for day-to-day usage.
(3) Are there programs that "force" or "require" that the User Settings be on Drive C?
Thanks in advance for any help on this ...
