Windows 7: User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation

Yes I have double checked and the drive is labelled D drive in windows disk management.

However that wouldn't explain the error message I seem to be getting. It seems to me as if the error message is saying that another process is accessing my relocate.xml file on my D drive. It doesn't make much sense when all I have done is a fresh Seven install on my C drive ssd, booted into Audit mode, opened notepad to create the .xml file, closed notepad, opened cmd to enter the prompt for the xml file.

What could be accessing that file and preventing cmd from running its prompt?

**edit yes I also input the command to end WMS but I still get the same erro about accessing the file help

What would Macrium do that Acronis does not?

It would not solve the issue of having the OS/System/Boot files entirely on the SSD? I would like to have all system files on the SSD.

With an OS drive+data drive you can't use a single image to restore to two drives. Most issues will occur with the OS and not Users nor AppData.
Did you move these files during the install?
Macrium is flexible and will let you exclude files if you wish.

Sounded like you were just trying to make an image, and your screenshot showed windows imaging.

I just used the Win backup screen shot to show that C and D are both part of the system image I use Acronis for most of backups.

It sounds like there is not a way around having both disks included as the system file if you use the automated method?

Anybody have any ideas as to the solution of my problem?

I am receiving the error "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process when I input the command for the relocate.xml file. I cannot figure out what on earth could be accessing that file in the root of my D : drive

That is correct. Since you are using this tutorial You will have two drives, one OS, one data. A Windows image will take both as an image. It will restore to a single disk only. As I stated you will need to have images of each drive using Macrium or Acronis, which I'm not familiar with.

I have no solution for this. Is D:\ a hard drive? What drive is the answer file on?

Thanks for your help. I do appreciate the responses.

I'll do a little more planning to see if I can figure out how to do what I want with either this method or another way.

Thanks, Bill
