    Is it possible to relocate the Fonts folder? I'd like to share one common folder between multiple Windows installations (and also make recovering all my fonts on a full OS reinstall easier), and not have duplicate copies of these fonts in several places.

    Thanks :p

    AFAIK that is one system folder that CANNOT be moved.

    I'm not competely sure, but maybe changing the reg keys "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders" and "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders" would do the trick.
    Always backup before messing with the registry.
