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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
