When you use the System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) or Windows Vista Setup to apply the FolderLocations unattend settings, some system directory junctions do not point to the new target location

When you use the System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) to apply the FolderLocations unattend settings, some system directory junctions do not point to the new target location. The following system directory junctions continue to point to the old locations:

  • C:\ProgramData\Desktop continues to point to C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
  • C:\ProgramData\Documents continues to point to C:\Users\Public\Documents.
  • C:\ProgramData\Favorites continues to point to C:\Users\Public\Favorites.

  • C:\Documents and Settings continues to point to C:\Users.
  • C:\Users\Default User continues to point to C:\Users\Default.
