Not sure how to migrate the folder. But if you want to just convert the FAT32 to NTFS, execute this command at the prompt:

CONVERT x: /FS:NTFS

x: is the drive letter you want to convert to NTFS

This converts FAT32 to NTFS WITHOUT data loss. Everything will still be there.

You can move the home folder for individual users by simpily MOVING it in Explorer. Windows should automatically update the registry to point to the new location.

Not sure about the entire "Documents and Settings" folder though.


Alternatively, you could do it through the account manager.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
