'Re-link' a Win 7 User folder to an account?


  • I have a windows 7 SOE for my school which involves two partitions - C: for system (windows) and programs, and D: for Data. The "Users" folder is kept on D:. All users are in Active Directory.

    I would like to be able to re-image drive C: when there is a problem, and have the user be able to pick up where they left off with the data on drive D:. However, when I tried re-imaging just drive C:, when I logged in for the first time, it created a new user folder in drive D: - I still had access to the old one, but it wasn't the default location for my files (the old one was named 'myusername' while the newly created one was named 'myusername.DOMAIN')

    Any ideas how I can 're-link' the account to the pre-existing user drive? Registry entry? Sysprep command?
