    Hello, I've been moving my docs, my pics, etc changing the location to another drive.... but is there a way to set it to use another drive and not have to move 1 by 1 all the folders?

    This way it's much easier to do a clean install destroying drive C each time I have a problem and have all my personal stuff on drive D.

    thanks!

    GOOD PLAN.

    If u find a way let us all know. I've been doing it one at a time since XP.

    If u can find all the reg entries - and I believe that is where the info is - u can make a .REG file to change them all with a couple clicks.

    Here is where a lot of them are

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders]

    good hunting
