    I am in the process of helping someone with a PC hardware upgrade and helping him prepare to routinely make Images of the Windows System Partition. The hardware upgrade is finished.

    I recommended for him to move his pictures, music, videos and any other 'space consuming' files from the Windows System Partition ('C:') to the other partition on the same hard drive ('E:'). The purpose of this 'move' is to minimize the Windows System Partition Image file sizes.

    However, I found out that he moved all of the MyDocument folders for each User from 'C:' to 'E:'. I thought that he was just going to move files and folders from within the MyDocument folders. He appears to have done some mixing of the several different MyDocuments folders.


    1. Will what he did cause problems?
    2. Is there a way (without reinstalling Windows) to regenerate new (fresh) MyDocument folders for each User?
    3. Are there any other actions that need to be taken?

    Thanks in Advance.
