Hi Guys

I have windows 8 on my PC and I have a 64GB SSD and a 2 TB HDD... when I had Windows 7 I followed these instructions to move the user directory

They are great instructions by the way... anyway I thought I might be able to follow them to do the same on windows 8 but at the recovery boot up into the cmd but I cant find the drive letters for my SSD or HDD I am stuck at X:\ which is the virtual drive (contains the windows 8 setup it seems)

please can anyone help. It worked so well on windows 7 I really want to do it this way again. I know there is ways I can just right click and send folders to a different drive but this really felt solid in execution!
