Moving USER files to different HDD | duplicate links + missing icons
Hey just a question in relation to moving "C:\User" location (SSD) to "E:\User" location (different HDD). I previously had all my all my folders (Windows, Users, Program Files etc) on my SSD but I decided to install Windows 8 RP, gave it a try and successfully migrated the User folder from the C:\ drive to the E:\ drive and it worked first time.
I decided to go back to Windows 7 (Important files backed up to third HDD so not a major inconvenience to install a OS), I followed the <a href="http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/moving_user_files">same guide</a> when installing Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate) except this time I got a shortcut file to my new documents but when going through the shortcut from C:\ it goes to C:\Users\bedroom instead of E:\Users\bedroom now I'm guessing I just failed to do the below command properly but just to be sure for when I do it next time I'll know for certain.
rmdir "C:\users" /S /Q
Second question, some of my system programs (and profile image) have disappeared
It should look like this
But mine looks like this
I did a quick search and found a way to get them back (Start Menu All Programs in Windows 7 - Restore Default Shortcuts), and I've got them all back now but still don't have the default photo above bedroom (and on login screen) and I also don't know what is missing other then those, there could potentially be more but that's the only one I've run into so far. So does anyone know what causes it? It seemed to happen after doing system updates but I'm not 100% sure.

Update and Run a full scan with Malwarebytes.
Restore User profile using Option Two here: User Profile - Change Default Location
In the future for greater stability and less issues, simply copy your named User folder contents to folder created on desired drive, then rightclick each to add them to relevant Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums.
