Clean up Documents Folder using Redirect?

Hi, my user Documents folder is full of sub-folders created by
applications for their own use... many of these apps don't allow the
path for these folders to be set.

A good example is SyncToy which creates a sub-directory called
"SyncToyData" in the Documents folder.

I would like to collect all of these application related folders into a
single sub-folder like "Documents\Application Files"... so that SyncToy
is storing it's stuff in "Documents\Application Files\SyncToyData"

Is there a way to setup redirects for these folders so that the
originals can be deleted or hidden?

These paths are usually hard-coded into the applications themselves. You
have to know how to change the path in the application.

Isn't that what I said in the first sentence of my original post?

You are absolutely zero help.

Anyway, I found out how to do this elsewhere using hidden junction
points... 'Vista's symbolic links feature saves navigating time'
