Windows 7: My userís account folders, in which partition?

13 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Moving AppData is pretty easy, you just need a second Administrator account to log into.

Basicly you log into the second account move AppData to where you want it.
Then you open a command prompt, typing: "mklink /J older/appdata/location new/appdata/location
You are done.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

True that such is possible and did the same thing myself a couple of months ago. I found that this broke some Win7 features and some apps.

Since that experience I've ceased and desisted from moving AppData.

Theoretically, there should be no problems but there are.
