Windows 7: Question before Win 10 upgrade - User profiles on second HDD

Question before Win 10 upgrade - User profiles on second HDD

Hi,

When I built my PC, I moved the default user profile location to my HDD (SDD as primary for OS and programmes), during Win 7 install, using the tutorial by Kari.

If I allow the PC to upgrade to Win 10, will this initial set-up be replicated, or will I find that it wants to place all user profiles onto the SDD?

Just worried as to what is going to happen.

Steve

Move them back before you upgrade or you will have significant problems. You can then move them back again after the upgrade completes.

And there lies the problem. I relocated the Users and ProgramData by running a script that Kari suggested. No idea how to 'move them back' to C drive. Not only that but the relocated data totals 104GB and my SSD only has capacity for 44GB

Any other thoughts?
