    Default Windows 7 - My Documents

    Hi Guys
    Just getting to grips with Windows 7.

    I have a physical D drive on which I want to store all of my data.
    I want to make My Documents link to my D drive.

    I am trying to understand the new Libraries feature.
    Under Libraries/Documents I have a Public Documents folder.
    I seem to have lost My Documents folder.

    Can I manually add a My Documents folder ?

    Is there any info out there on this subject ?
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    Windows 7 will change the name of the destination folder to My Documents.

    I agree XP is much more sensible but what is so bad about those instructions? They seem very clear and simple to me...
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    All I did was went to username/documents. Selected the Documents folder and CUT, then went to D: and PASTED.
    It's now on D:, Windows updated all it's references, reg entries and so on. Just the same as it was in XP.
    wipe your paws.

    I'm surprised that actually worked.

    Whenever I've done things like that in the past, Windows has not liked me...
