Hi,
I am running Win7 Home Premium on a ZT desktop and recently changed the name of my user account so that I can sync files with my laptop also runnung Win 7 Home Premium. Problem: It seems that most of my files are still listed under the old "file path" instead of a file path utilizing the new name of the user account. This is an administrator account. For example: my custom dictionary has a file path of C:\Users\JPL\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC - when it should be C:\Users\PWM\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC - Should I just leave well enough alone since everything seems to be working okay or will this create problems in the future? Do I need to re-index all of my files? If so, what is the best way to do this?
Thanks for your input.
