  1. How to use old user folder with new windows installation.


    Hello!
    I just got a new SSD HDD installed in my computer, which have a new installation of Windows 10 pro on it (Version 1903), and it have created a new use, and my computer starts up using this windows installation... Now, I still have everything on my old HDD, including the old windows installation and user folder. Now I really want to use my old user and old user folders, where all my documents, files for several programs and such are, but I have no idea how to make a user and tell it to use that user folder.
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks a lot!

    :)

  3. Windows installation folder

    A couple of years ago, I read that Windows has a special folder that contains files used during the installation process. Also, I heard there's another folder that Windows uses as a back-up of every system file, just in case the user wants to do a system restore. Where can I find both folders and are they safe to delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink How to use old user folder with new windows installation. ;)
    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.
