Added more to the post

here's a random Q. I have SAY CAPS LOCK LIKE THIS. Is there a way to make it none caps? Most likely not as it's different in binary or whatever

Ok I have read through everything, few questions. Never done one of these disk images before. Presumably I do this before windows updates and driver updates? And use it when I need to reinstall

Row 14: Change the drive letter in wim:E to that of your CD/DVD drive where your Windows 7 installation DVD currently is
This make it sound like I need to select my DVD Drive? Which in my case is F. While D is a storage partition.

I would want all of the user folders to go to the C drive *currently the OS drive* on my 1TB HDD. Which I will format before installing the SSD. So do I change the script to the letter F for my DVD Drive, or C for the location I want the user files to be installed to?

I will no doubt change the letter though on the 1TB from 'C' to something else to make it easier to understand, when I format it

I am not familar with that method of installing while changing user directory location so can't advise you on that.

Here is how to change User folder location normally after install: User Folders - Change Default Location

I guess I can do it that way... easier probably. Just the first thing to do when installed

User Folders - Change Default Location

Slightly lost here, am I doing the option 1 or option 2?

If option 2 I guess its option 2 within that one as well (regedit one)

If you want to move your entire named User account's folders - Documents, Fravorites, Music, Pictures, etc... - then use Option 1.

If you want to pick and choose the folders you move then use Option 2.

Option 1 it is then, I don't even use the music folder etc..as storage is on another partition.
It's the app data which takes up space. Which can go on the hdd

You can delete AppData temp files as they are not needed and often harbor infection and corruption.

As a matter of course, never import AppData files as they are the Number One corruption path into a clean reinstall. Just start with fresh program installs and settings.
