Another little one! I've done a clean install of XP on my lappy and partitioned the disk into two drives "C" and "D". Intending O.S. and Progs to live in splendid isolation on "C" drive, whilst my data (all the "My" folders)happily inhabit "D" drive!
Problem is, the "My" folders for "All users", "Current User" and "Name", are all contained in the "Documents and settings" folder on the "C" drive.
I recall reading somewhere that these particular folders have some unique features, and you can't just move them around any old way, it must be done correctly.
woodchip; That's what I want to avoid. I've done that on my PC running Vista, and every blessed porgramme, when I want to "Save" opens a window showing the folder on the "C" drive. It doesn't sound much, but it grinds you down constantly having to navigate to the other "Drive" and down to the folder you want to target. Sometimes when you're tired or not paying attention, you mistakenly accept the offered location, then days later spend hours tracking down misplaced files!!
Like this press Win Key plus E key, this opens Windows Explorer Click on +Documents and Settings then you name should be there or person who uses the computer click on the +again the "Send to" it should expand to let you see programs etc what you can send to. Now open your D:\ Drive the Folder you want to send to, right click it and drag to the above Send To on C:\ drive then when you let go the button choose create short cut.
Thats it, you can do this as many times as you want
Thanks FE, Got as far as saying yes to the move in instruction No 5, half way through the transfer, I get a message saying : - "Are you sure you want to move the system file sisagp.cat ?" Response, ..I've no idea!.....why do I suspect there may be further questions once this one is answered! lol Can you advise please?
F.E. yes, good job I clicked "yes to all" since I had just tidied away a full set of drivers that I'd just used to do a clean install with from an unbranded OEM disk. I never thought it would sense that these were system files. Sometimes windows is just too clever for my own good! ROTFL
