I’ve been running windows 7 for a while now on both my home and work PC’s and all in all I’ve been pretty impressed. However, today I found one feature/bug that I can see will cause no end of pain.
Today I decided to download the R2 of Windows 2008, so after firing up the Microsoft Transfer Manager selecting the C drive as my download location and then waiting for the next couple of hours my transfer was complete.
The problem, the file I had supposedly stored on my C Drive was no where to be seen. I did some checking in the FTM to be sure the transfer hadn’t failed, but still no file to be found.
So after some much heated clicking around I noticed the following button
Turns out that the file I told FTM to stored in c:\ was placed in “c:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore”
Not very intuitive place to put things Microsoft
