I am going to install Windows 7 on a machine in some days time. I wanted to know if it is easy to separate the OS data from users' data (/users in Windows 7, I believe) on separate partition during or after installation.
I hope it will be as seamless as with "/home" on Unix or Linux, but I have never tried it with Windows before.
My main motivation is to be able to do re-installs of the OS without having to worry too much about recovering the users' data from backups (saves some hours). Also, I have personally favor this separation, coming from Linux background.
All inputs and experiences regarding this are welcome.
