Documents Folder and Link Redirecting
I moved my documents folder from c:\users\bob\documents to
\\NAS\Data\bob\bob. I also moved my other directories from c: such as
\\NAS\Data\bob\Links. If I try to create a link or shortcut to this
directory, it always puts me into my music directory \\NAS\media\music. I
don't understand why the link changes after I save it to go to the music
directory.

I want to create a Favorite Link called Bobs Documents and point it to
\\NAS\Data\bob\bob. Whenever I do this, it redirects me to \\NAS\media\music.

Thoughts?

RE: Documents Folder and Link Redirecting
The links seems to work for directories other than \\NAS\Data\bob\bob. No
matter what directory I try to create the link, they all save correctly.
Once executed, the location changes to \\NAS\media\music.

Thoughts?
