I tried to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Unfortunately, during the upgrade process I receive the following error:
Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1. This might be because the Users or Program Files folder is being redirected to another partition.
Which is accurate in that I have my Users directory on my
D: drive and Windows installed on my
C: drive. I do this because my
C: drive is an SSD drive and
D: drive is a spinning rust drive where I keep my data. Is it possible to upgrade to Windows 8.1 from a Windows 8 install with a redirected Users folder?
I do not consider a full reinstall of Windows 8 with a non-mapped Users folder and then upgrading that installation to be "upgrading."
