Someone a few days ago asked me this and I just looked it up when I myself needed to know.
He asked "How Can I Change My Documents Folder Path To a My Documents Folder On My Other Drive?". He went on to explain that he had Windows XP OS.
Now you may ask yourself why would anyone need to know that? Well, I just realized after restoring my computer that since almost all my business, personal, ideas, pictures, movies whatever is all stored in my My Documents folder it would be cool to have it on another seperate drive or partition. So incase I format the computer, I wouldn't even need to make any backups of this gigantic folder (>30GB).
I can simply go on and restore my PC and use My Documents folder on a seperate partition.
How do we do that was TONS simpler than I thought. Someone first told me to go into the registry and tweak the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Shell Folders \
But the problem with that was that everytime I changed the path there and reboot, I would see that it changed back to what it was before.
I hope this little bit of info helps to whome ever.
