In order to separate my documents from Windows XP, I keep them in a 'My Documents' folder in a separate partition. (E:)
A couple of times this week when I have clicked on the Start / My Documents folder, the folder has been empty. On investigation, I have discovered that XP has switched to the default 'My Documents' folder on the C: drive - which is empty, since all my documents are on the E: drive.
Why does it do this and how can I stop it doing it in the future? (This is the first time it has started doing it in the 5 years I have been using XP)
I have now re-set XP to go to 'My Documents' in the E: partition. Hopefully that is the way it will stay set.
