changing user directory to an other partition.
Hi there,

in windows xp it was possible through the properties dialogbox to change the
physical location of the my documents directory.
In Vista there is this folder called after your login, is there anyway to
change this to an other directory?

kind regards
Richard

Re: changing user directory to an other partition.
Any of the default Vista folders under C:\Users\(your user name) are shell
folders and can be moved via the folder's Properties dialog box, using the
Location tab.

What about relocating the entire /Users directory?
