Moving a user profile or a part of it
Hi there

I'm just installing a new computer running Vista Home 64b (dell laptop).
This computer will have 2 users, admin and jane.
Jane is a 'regular' user, no admin rights.
I want to separate what is static (os, programs...) from what is dynamic
(datas).
For this I tried to move jane's personal folder to another partition, it
worked fine, I did the same for her desktop, worked fine also, I tried
the same with the appdata folder, it does not work: the quick launch
folder remains at its primary location (in Jane's profile).
I did all this by modifying the values in the shell folders and user
shell folders keys.
Do you have a solution to do this? or a solution to move Jane's profile
(only hers) to another partition?

Thanks in advance

Regards

YL

I found a solution, it moves the profiles folder elsewhere:

Better to do it with a new vista installation (nothing to loose).
