    2 Windows folders in C:\


    Help! There are 2 Windows folders created with the same time, One have space the other doesn't, If I go to the other Windows folder, It said the files cannot open because it couldn't find the location, I could not create a folder, If I press delete, I could but it said a file in it is using, I'm very confused, I reinstalled Windows that time, My computer is clean. My computer updated twice. Does this cause by an update issue?

    :)

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink 2 Windows folders in C:\ ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    2 Windows folders in C:\

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions
