    Done something wrong. Can someone walk me thru this -

    Win7 OS = C:drive
    • Move User Folder from C:drive to another HDD (e.g. F:drive)

    Can someone fill in the stages below plz?

    Go here > do this > do this > do this > presto - User folder is now in F:drive

    In the Win7 or Win8 Navigation pane on the left, in Favorites click Desktop
    Double click your username icon
    The following are icons to be dealt with....

    Contacts
    Desktop
    Documents
    Downloads
    Favorites
    Links
    Music
    Pictures
    Saved Games
    Searches
    Videos


    Right click the item, Properties, Location tab
    Change C to F (so you now might have F:\Users\Brian\Desktop)
    Apply
    Yes to "Create Folder"
    Yes to "Move Folder"
    OK



    What went wrong?

    Manly lost.

    And on top of that I'm having all sorts of bother trying to create Boot CD for i4W.

    But your suggestion / diections for user folder r fine thank you. Getting so frustrated Thought about buying Snapshot. But I'm as useless as... at making a boot CD for it too.

    Where are you up to with the TBWinRE? It is basically two steps. A 30 second job.

    Edit....
    In imagew.ini, delete all lines starting with ;
    You are left with two lines..

    Code:
    [License]
    Key=
    Fill in the Key line with your own serial, such as...

    Code:
    Key=John Smith 000000-111111-222222-333333-444444-555555-666666-777777-888888-999999
    Right click TBWinRE.cmd and Run as administrator.

    Wait until instructed to make a boot disk.

    Follow instructions to make a CD or UFD.

    Should be easy. No?

    The TBWinRE boot disk is amazing. It can do so many things.

    The IFL boot disk is amazing too, in a somewhat different way. The IFL boot disk can even restore a Windows or Linux image over a wireless network (with WPA2 security) and that is unique.
