Hi Guys,

first off I'd like to say thanks for this awesome tool!

Now on to the real question:

We have a bunch of clients that have moved userprofiles to another partition. This is kind of oldschool practice from the days where SSDs were new and my old established colleagues did it a bunch. Profiles have been copied to D:\ and a junction has been placed on C:\ (mklink /j).

Now, using profwiz, it migrates the profile until after first login with the new domain profile. It uses a temp profile and I sense that there's problems with the junction in place. My fix is to copy the profiles back to C:\, BUT I figured I'd ask if there was another workaround for this issue?

Thanks in advance!
