How to Change a Personal User Folder Location in Vista
Synopsis
This will show you how to redirect Personal user folders to another partition, hard drive, or folder location to be stored in instead. The folder will still be in the (your username) location in the Start Menu, except it will redirect everything to the location you selected like a shortcut.
How to Change a Personal User Folder Location in Vista



information   Information
The personal user folders can be redirected to, and all files inside them, another partition, hard drive, or folder location to be stored in instead. The folder will still be in the (user name) location in the Start Menu as usual, but it will act like a shortcut to the new location instead.
Note   Note
This can be handy if you would like to save space on the drive or partition with Vista on it, or you prefer to just store the files in the use folders at another location.
Tip   Tip
If a personal user folder has been deleted, is missing, or does not work propely, then see: How to Restore a Missing Personal User Folder in Vista
warning   Warning

  • If you have a program that places a folder in one these user folders, like the Documents folder, then you do not want to change it's location until you change the setting in the program to use another folder or the new personal folder location. Deleting the program's folder usually does not do any good. It will just be added back by the program. If you do not, then you will have two undeletable copies of the user folder. Example: Windows Live Messenger puts and uses a folder in the Documents folder.
  • If you change the Favorites folder location, it will no longer show work from within IE7 unless you change the permission level of the new Favorites folder to give Authenticated User full control. For how, see: How to Change Folder Permissions
  • If you use Windows Mail or any other email program that uses the Vista C:\Users\(user name)\Contacts folder for contacts, then do not change the Contacts folder default location to keep using Contacts in these programs.

EXAMPLE: Personal User Profile Folder Icons
NOTE:
Location is at C:\Users\(User Name)

Hey Shawn,

Dont worry it fixed itself after a reboot. The clone no longer appears, although if it does again I'll let you know. I dont use windows mail, I use live mail which isnt supported by windows contacts so i'll have to manually add the contacts.

Cheers,
Joronamo.

Well, I am trying hard, but making little progress.


I followed the REDEDIT steps. In the list of available folders, there were two of each: Documents, My Music, My Videos, My Pictures. One folder had a sync icon over the folder image. Those were marked as having location of \\ricstore\users\username\foldername, and were clearly created by some super-computer system that was placing all these folders on some server. The other folder was not editable as far as location, the location tab being absent, but had the location listed as c:\users\username. So, I went to all the sync files, as they were the only ones I could edit location, and keyed in %USERPROFILE%\foldername. I closed regedit and restarted. When I checked these locations again, they had been changed back to the

Hello 4MUL8R, and welcome to Vista Forums.

It looks like your post was cut off before you finished it. You would have duplicates when the user folder was moved to another location and you have another program or something that is still saving something at the original location causing the C:\Users\UserName folder without a Location tab to be automatically created. You should be able to fix this be restoring the default locations of the original folders in the registry. Option Two in this tutorial will help show you how to better.

Ok, so this may be a simple question -but - if the program gives you the option of telling it where to put it's "appXstuff" folder, and the default is "C:\user...", could I just change that to "%userprofile%\appXstuff" to avoid the problems outlined above?

Hello Jeff,

Yes, it would be easier to set that option in the program to be directed to a folder location you want it to be saved in instead. If you changed the default location, you can also just redirect the program option to the new location as well for that folder to avoid the recreation of the user folder problem.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

As an update, I did find that a network policy had redirected my documents folder to a server (a corporate deal). This automagically took away the location tab on my documents folder properties window. I have removed the offline file sharing and restored the original folder location, and things are at least in my control now. I do need to get the Vista documents folder redirected to look at d:\ with no current subfolder named documents on that d:\ drive. Is this something I can do, without the official documents subfolder? Or, should I create a documents folder on d:\, move everything into it, then tell Vista that documents reside there?

Hello 4MUL8R,

If you can select a folder, preferably a empty one, on the D drive to be your Documents folder location in the registry, then you might be able to do it without creating another new folder there.

Hope this helps,

I want to move THE WHOLE Users folder.
Is there any tutorial on this site or can you please tell me how can I do this?


Thank you!

Hello G0dLik3,

Sorry, but it is not advisable to do that. There are to many items in Vista that are hard coded to the default user folder location. Changing the location would cause a lot of unwelcomed problems. For example, among all the others, Favorites in IE and Contacts in Windows Mail would no longer work in those programs. :(

Hi

I tried moving some of my User folders to another hard drive and it all appeared to go OK. However, I have noticed that the files are no longer private when someone else logs on to the PC even though the folders are green. Is there a way to restore privacy to these files?

Cheers

Hello Supervoc, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You could change the permission levels on the folder to not allow only that user permission access. This will help show you how. Just be sure not to deny everyone or your user account.

Hi Brink

Thanks for the welcome and the link.

I found that after I had followed the instructions the files could still be read by another administrator log-in, so while I was in there I denied access to the files and took ownership of them as well. This seems to have done the trick. Is this likely to cause me any problems down the line?

Regards

I read on one of your posts not to move the favorites folder unless you grant it sufficient priviledges, what priviledges are needed or did I read it wrong?

And am i right in assuming that you cannot move the outlook folders? I want to move my ost file as I'm using a 30Gb SSD and 6Gb of ram and its getting a bit tight (need to turn hibernation off.

13thmonkey,

It's not a good idea to move the Favorites folder because it will cause the Favorites in Internet Explorer to no longer work. :(

I do not know about the Outlook folders. You might post that question in the Microsoft Office subforum in the Software forum.
