    Hi,

    Is there a way to change the location of the system folders like "My Music" and "My Pictures". The reason I want to change the location is because most of my music and pics are on a second, larger hard disk.

    Thanks.

    I'm at school on an iMac right now, but I think I know how to do that, I'll post how to do that, unless someone else tells you first...

    make a search in regedit for "my music" and "my pictures"
    then edit the entries by putting new locations

    copy folders to new locations

    reboot

    delete old locations

    i did it this way and it worked

    :)

    It's very simple. Just cut 'n' paste them to a new location.

    if you have Tweakui you can do it from there. go under the My Computer tab you can change the location of folder lacations from there.
