    i wish to redirect my shell folders, i.e., my documents, music, etc.
    i know i might use the 'include folder' option, but it does not redirect the default location, it includes a reference to the included folder.

    i tried the change keys in the regedit, but somehow, nothing had changed.
    the location in the registry which i changed the keys is:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

    when i refer to shell:personal it still points to the location which no more exists in the registry. which is strange..

    i know i can navigate to %USERPROFILE% and right click my document folder, go to properties and "move the folder", but i do not which to that too.

    i have a folder which is located in some other drive, let's say, I:\docs.
    i wish that when i refer to shell:personal it will refer to I:\docs without to include this library.

    hope you could help me,
    thanks from advanced.
