so I pick my new pc up and everything is installed on the ssd (C drive) which is kinda what I was expecting, but I was also expecting to be able to change the bloody location of the user folder to my HDD!!!
iv been on this thread here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-files/how-to-move-user-folders-to-2nd-drive-in-windows-8/f58029d0-bfcf-4fab-a266-a56f6d9e65b5?page=3 with another bunch of pissed of people at Microsoft because they cant fix a simple issue, and still haven't found my answer.
one of the problems I have is I cannot find the location bar in the user properties to change the location of the user folder which may be why. (my pc is a custom so I may not be able to restore it as it may un install windows, gpu software and cpu software installed on the ssd (I don't know if the fact that its a custom will change this).
I would realy like a simple answer that wont corrupt anything. please help. thankyou.
