Problem after bootup

By egsiegmund ·
I removed a primary slave hard drive with no apparent data. I replaced it a previously used drive (was a prim. master). Now upon boot-up I get a box stating "Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes....". A second box then states it is logging on with a temporary profile. Next I get a Desktop picture, some icons are missing ,bookmarks are missing and my old email and address has disappeared.

There are items in the local profile that are in hidden files.

You must have had some of the local profile files stored on that slave drive.

You choices are to put the old slave back or recreate the stuff that was in the old profile.

the desk top, favorites etc.

you can also put the old slave drive back in, unhide the files and copy the settings you need to the primary master.

Then switch the drives again. Boot up and then move the items into the newly created profile where they belong.
