i heard that moving documents and settings to another partition was usually a pain in the [bleep] but i was wondering if i can cheat using a second computer. my idea was to take the harddrive in question out of the computer and mount it on my other machine. at that point i would move documents and settings from c to e. after this is done i would use linkd.exe to create an ntfsjunction from c:documents and settings to e:documents and settings. would this work or would windows freak out and die on me. my biggest concern is if somthing tries to read or write C:documents and settings\username\my documents would it automatically go to E:documents and settings\username\my documents or will it just fail i am not sure how deep a junction will work or even if xp knows what to do with them.
