How To Move Windows 7/VISTA User and Program Data Folders Pre-User Creation - Page 2

post #11 of 73
You can probably include some other tips such as disabling page file, hibernation, and system restore as well. Also turning off Recycle Bin or reduce in size for the ssd, turning off Reliability Monitor, and short stroking your hdd can help reduce writes and extend the write life too. wink.gif

And disabling indexing on the ssd! lol

As I said in the guide, I will have more come with what you said, moving the page file, disabling and moving memory dumps, and moving the windows folder temp files.

so when you install things to the program files directory will they automatically install on the Mechanical drive? I can't enter Auedit after already having 7 completely set up and doing all of this?

Some competition to this guide - How to: Setup SSD boot drive with secondary Hard disc optimization.

TwoCables won't like another similar guide tongue.gif

Anyway, good job on this guide! Will give it a try as soon as I purchase another Crucial SSD for my laptop wink.gif

Well they give exactly the same result. The other one is just not so well organized and it's easy to mess up while following it. Haven't tried this one yet so can't comment smile.gif

Dunno, TC didn't like the other one and since the aim of this guide is exactly the same, he wouldn't like this one either.

Sorry, this guide is not the same. If you read the guide you will see that this is the proper way to move user and program data directories before anything is installed or any users are created. The other guide is good if you want to move them without a clean install if you want. That is the whole reason I made the guide.

Ah, thanks for clarification. Looking forward to trying it some time soon! wink.gif +Rep

Won't this post any problems with any programs that you install? Other programs like AppData to be on drive C right?

This will cause no problems, we have about 70 computer at my work running this way right now. It is generally done with Microsoft deployment toolkit with SCCM but this is another way to do it via sysprep. AppData is stored in the User folders all of that will get moved as well. The majoirity of your cache and temp files get written and stored in your AppData and Program Data folders.
