    Okay, so I've got myself into quite a problem. All started off with me trying to transfer my home folder to a different drive other than the main OS stuff one. I achieved it! Managed to move all my documents, and tell Vista to look in the F drive for my profiles now, not C. Problem is, in the process, I've lost all my settings (application stuff, wallpapers, etc.).

    All these settings are still sitting in the C drive, and I can't simply copy them to the new profile in the F drive (making sense?) because they're protected or something. So basically, what I need is a way to copy settings from a profile in the C drive, to a profile in the F drive.

    I've tried using "Configure advanced user profile properties", and it would work, it's just that the profile I want to copy *from* is sitting in the wrong drive; Vista can't see it, and I can't move it.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :)
