Problem with mounting a partition

Hi!
I'd like to mount a partition ('E', formatted in NTFS) into C:\Users\username directory.
I mounted it into C:\Users\szymon1, than i created user 'szymon' (with his home directory at C:\Users\szymon, than i changed szymon -> szymon2 and szymon1 -> szymon, than i copied all data from szymon2 directory
But, when i log it, i get information like that:

'you have been logged on with temporary profile
you cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off'

at C:\Users\ i can find a TEMP direcoty (with a little locker on it's icon), inside it ther are 4 folders: (hidden) AppData, than Music, Pictures, Videos and hidden file ntuser.dat

how can i solve this problem?

sincerely
RR

If i understand you correctly, the only reason you did what you did was so that you wouldnt have to re organise all your files and data again after updating to windows 7.

If that is the case, re install everything and then just move your files across afterwards.

Apologies if i miss understand you.

hi. I already run Win7 (ultimate, x86_64). I did it- because i don't like to keep my data on C drive, i prefer to keep it on seperate partition- but I don't like to have too many partition letters in explorer. NTFS supports mounting into directories, so i wanted to do it.
