changing the path of My Documents

  goose1984 22:16 22 May 2005

Hiya all

I set the path to My Documents to a path on a network. I am no longer on or will be able to access this network.

Everytime I right click on My Documents and go to properties it states "The properties for this item is not avaliable" so I cant change the path back to normal

Is there any other way that I can change the path of My Documents other than this??

Hi, if you are using XP then you could try a System Restore back to an earlier time before you changed the Path.

I am not sure about this facility in other versions of Windows.

I looked at the MS link you suggested, which says -

1]Firstly create a folder in a different drive.
2]Next assign proper permission.
3]Now open My Computer.
4]Right click on My Documents present on the left side menu and select properties.
5]Change the target folder path and Apply.

Would you please explain what (2) above means as I would like to try it. Thanks David
