  1. I got Users moved to D:, but had a mess when trying to move ProgramData to D:* Wound up giving up on moving ProgramData. Copied back files from D: but have some worry that in all my attempts to move and delete files, some of the original ProgramData files may have been lost! Would I be getting an error already if this were the case? I'm afraid at some point in the future (perhaps with an update?) there will be an error because some file didn't get preserved in all my attempts to delete files... Any thoughts? Thanks! *DETAILS re: trying to move ProgramData, if you're interested: I changed the registry setting "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders" to reflect D:....But then problems included: 1) couldn't delete the C:\ProgramData folder (parts of the "Microsoft" directory...) 2) started searching the registry-->I'm finding more registry keys with "ProgramData" elsewhere in the registry that point to the "C:" location still. Tried changing them all to "D:" to see if that helped, but actually was getting errors trying to change some of them (it even ghosts out the option to copy the keys!). Examples included: HLKM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Signature Updates\SignatureLocation HLKM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search\Databases\FileName *AND* \LogPath HLKM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search\Gathering Manager\Applications\Windows *AND* \DefaultProjectPath *AND* \GatherLogsPath
