Windows 7: Something a little different...

11 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Something a little different...

My computer's mainboard died, so now I'm back on my dads computer.

I've put my old HDD into my dads computer, so whenever I wanna watch my anime I just navigate to D drive.

However now I want to make my own user account on my dads computer, however onces thats done, instead of using C drive, use my D drive with all my data on it.

I've read around, however the tut's I've seen don't tell me if I can only move 1 user profile, and not all.

To summaries.

1 Computer
2 HDD's
Dad's user = C drive
My user = D drive.

Can i do it?

Any reason why you want to migrate the user profile and not just the files.

You can create a user at your dad's computer and then reassign those folders with this tutorial
User Folders - Change Default Location
If it asks you to move content from new user profile (C:\) to your old one (D:\) click - no.
