hi,
my dad has messed up his pc by moving his windows "my documents" folder along with other folders and i cant get them back to their proper place, he has also named other folders my documents and for some reason, windows thinks that the folder he has named my documents is the windows default?
but he has named that many. and i cant find the things he needs.
he has windows xp pro, and if i click on start button and opposite click my documents, click properties, the target location points to - C:\Documents and Settings\brian\pictures\dock\bosso\My Documents.

and also on my pc, i have xp pro, and if i click on my documents properties there is a button to click to restore default, but none on my dads?.
what can i do to rectify this problem?
thanks, agent47!

Right-click on My Documents on the desktop or in the Start menu and choose Properties. Click on Find Target to select the new location, and click on OK. In the Move Documents box, click on Yes to move the documents.


Make sure no documents are open when you do this.

i ran a search for "my documents" and it came up with 16 folders named my documents?
also he had 12 "my pictures" folders and lots of other copys of things he has been messing with!
anyway i finally found it and i have restored them to their original location.
i have just got to sort out all of the other folders now!!!!!
thanks for the help.
