    Your post above has a link to https://www.sevenforums.com/attachme...me-win7x64.zip , which has two .msu files. Do I need to run both?
    Yes


    Are there any others I need to run to put NVMe drivers into my Win 7?
    No, there are some programs that cant read smart info from specific nvme disks unless they have an additional driver, in which case use the phison driver as well.

    The tutorial says :

    If you changed the default location of a user account's profile folder, then you will need to change it back to the default C:\Users location first.
    Does this include the User\Public folder as well ? I have changed its location, and I have a lot of things there, including active databases for programs. Thank you.

    It would be recommended to avoid any possible issues. You can move it back afterwards.

    Thank you, Brink.

    Edit : oh, and by the way, how does one move the User\Public folder ? If my understanding is correct, one has to follow the registry hack in this tutorial for moving user profiles. However, the Public "user" does not have the corresponding registry keys. Does it mean one only has to cut and paste it to move it elsewhere ?

    It's usually not recommended to move the "C\Users\Public" folder since it could break permissions and access to the folder.

    Depending on what you wanted, you might see if creating a symbolic link or junction point like below for this location to the location you wanted it at instead.

    Now I'm confused. Should I move the User\Public folder, or should I not ?

    I realize I omitted the context. I'm thinking of doing a repair install. The tutorial says I need to move the User profiles back to their default place before doing that. After the repair has, hopefully, succeeded, I plan to move them again to where they are now : on the D disk, as per Kari's setup :

    Normally, it's not recommended, but you can move it back afterwards if wanted.

    Thank you, I will try it. At this point, it's that or reinstalling from scratch.
