Windows 7: CardSpace is denied while pasting an existing account's profile folder

07 Apr 2015   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

Thank you both of you very much indeed,
Yes, I realize that Windows CardSpace is encrypted and accessible by the account that created it.
However, I didn't see that Brink mentioned to fix such problems 'with CardSpace' and information shown under HDD plugged to a PC when moving all users from C to another location.

What you said
if this is only to create back up/recovery options for your files it will be best to use Image your system with free Macrium, moving already created user profile folder to different location is just asking for problems, IMHO.', I think, is not reasonable for two reasons.
The first is no need to wast our time to apply steps in tutorials which will bring problems for us.
The other one is Making image by Macrium is good, but your personal stuff is updated/changed second by second while you're working on PC, so it is not reasonable to make image each second. However, if problem in the system happened before making image for your stuff while your stuff is on the System partition, then you will lost your stuff forever. So, the reasonable thing is moving all your personal stuff to another location other than system partition.

Also, This fault is for all existing accounts and newly accounts whose profile folders became on another location other than default C:

Even in device and printer, selecting Plugging external WD hard disk drive to my computer shows a different icon and detailed information for the HDD plugged while the existing account is on the default location 'C' as follows:

However, once existing account is on another location, the icon and information for the same HDD plugged to the PC are different as follows:
