Hey guys. I bought a SSD a while back and installed W7 on it. Then, I decided to move my User folder to my normal HDD, since I had way more space on that disk.

Now, that HDD just crashed and died. That corrupted my Windows 7 installation. When I boot in, my profiles are all dead. If I load in one, the desktop is all black, and the Start menu is empty. However, everything else works...

I forgot how I told W7 to move this User folder to the other disk, but I need to get them back on my main SSD. Hopefully that'd fix my Win7 and let me create new profiles again. Better than formatting...

I think I fiddled with Regedit and changed a few values. Does anyone know how I could fix this problem?

I'm not sure how that would work if the user folder is completely gone... you might have to do some kind of a repair/restore option?
