another windows 10 question about user folders

  martd7 17:18 13 Mar 2019

I followed a tutorial on the Internet to move my User files from the SSD drive to the hard drive to save space on the SSD

It was easy to follow and seems successful but the folders are still on the SSD as well as being on the Hard drive

Can i delete them or do they need leaving on the ssd?

Thanks again

sounds like you have done it with sym links?

if so, mine is he same, the folders aren't actually on the C drive, Windows just thinks they are are displays them that way in explorer.

I have a 128GB SSD and 35 GB is taken by windows my user folder contain 161GB which is of course bigger than the SSD drive
