I recently moved my profile directory from
E:\Users\[name] because I was running out of space on my drive C. I actually created a different account, completely copied everything from
I logged back into the original account and everything is working but when it comes to installing Windows 8 Metro Apps I get the following error. I am running Windows 8 RTM x64bit version.
This app could not be installed. please try again, Error Code: 0x80070005
Also when I run certain Metro apps now (not all Metro apps) I get the following error in event viewer. Any idea anyone? Maybe the two are related?

In most cases, 0x8007005 is permission issue. try to check the permission on the folder or even take ownership.
You could make a Symbolic link so that it will think that
C:\Users. Now what you need to do is open up Command Prompt (Once you have moved the Users folder) and make sure you open it in administrator mode. To do so, search "Cmd" in the charms bar and right click "Command Prompt". Then, click "Run as Administrator". Now, type in the following command.
mklink "C:\Users\[Name]" "E:\Users\[Name]"
Your users folder must have been recreated with 90% of the files.
I have had the same exact problem with the same drive letters and everything.
