Windows 7: Setting of the ACLs for the root directory of a logical partition

Setting of the ACLs for the root directory of a logical partition


I have Windows 7 SP1 and I should only move the users profiles (without the default profile) and the public folder in a NTFS logical partition.

I should modify the ACLs of the root directory (\) of the logical partition to still have a coherent and stable system or not? If so, how should I modify these ACLs?

I have not tried this so I would be very curious to see if it works for you or not. Make sure you have a good image backup before you do this so it's easy to recover if something goes wrong.
