    Moving Data Files in WIN 7

    Greetings -

    I'm having a difficult time putting the finishing touches on my new Dell Lattitude laptop with WIN 7 pro. I repartitioned the hard drive and have moved all of the standard library content: documents, pictures, etc. to what now is the e-drive. All pointers look good. I would also like to move the roaming folder from C:\users\me\AppData to the E drive as well. I am able to move the contents, but when I go back and check the marker, it still points to C:\Users\.. etc., and weird things happen like Windows Explorer not opening. I thought of making a registry change, but there's a gazillion iterations for the roaming folder. The library documents are so simple to move, but the roaming folder has me stymied. Permissions for the roaming folder seem ok. Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I do not believe the entire folder is movable. Just some of the individual folders within this main folder.

    I'm really tempted to ask "Why?". But perhaps this will help: Set 7 Free
