    I've followed the help and support instructions for redirected my user folders to a new location, which works.

    I have a problem redirecting the public folders to a new location. When I open the properties window for public folders then I can open the Location tab, but the buttons (Restore Default, Move, Find Target) do not show under the textfield with the path. I can place the pointer in the textfield of the path, but changes cannot be made.

    I've also follow this instruction from Microsoft how to redirect public folders to new location: Redirect a folder to a new location

    but it doesn't work either. When trying to run the command (explorer c:\users\public) in the promt window as administrator, it tells that expore is not recognized as an internal or external command. I've also opened the file-explorer as administrator, but still it is not possible to make any changes in the path-fieled in the new location window, neither are the buttons shown.

    Any ideas how to redirect public folders to a new location?

    I've already tried this as administrator, but I cannot make any changes in the path-fieled in the new location window, neither do the buttons show.

    Hello, Has anyone found a solution for this???

    I am trying to connect an external harddrive to a system and have the Windows 7 \Public folder be located on Harddrive.

    I would also like to store the Users Public folder here as well..

    Any thoughts???
