On my previous Windows 7 setup, I had migrated my user profiles (c:\users) to my data drive, so that I could easily re-install Windows without affecting my data and user profile. I did this using a symbolic link (mklink /j c:\users d:\users). I'm planning to do the same for my new setup (Windows 8 on an SSD), but I'd like to keep an Administrator account on the SSD, so that I can login to Windows safely in the event that the data drive fails and I lose my profile (backups notwithstanding).
I'm the only one likely to be using this computer, so there would just be my profile, the default/public profiles, and the Administrator account. Would the best approach be to make symbolic links for the specific profiles to be shifted to the data drive (i.e. mklink /j c:\users\joebloggs d:\users\joebloggs), thus leaving the Administrator account on the boot drive, or is there a better way?
