    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.

    Questions:

    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.
