Moving the User profile folder to another drive

Ever run out of space on a PC due to large profile sizes? We use small SSD’s here so this is a common occurance on older PC’s with the small drives. An easy way to fix is to install a new small SSD to create a D: drive and move the userdata folder over to that. Its quite easy to do.

Be warned though as microsoft advise against this as it can break upgrades and even windows update for some reason.
