I've just recently upgraded to Vista Ultimate x64, and I'm trying to get it set up. One of the things I did with Windows XP Pro was move the My Documents folder from the default C: drive to an eSATA external drive I had, incase I needed to format the hard drive the OS was on. Since the My Music and My Pictures folders were in the My Documents folder this went well, if I clicked the My Documents icon on the Start Menu it would go to the root directory of the external drive, and when I clicked either My Pictures or My Music it would go to those folders.
I tried doing the same thing with Vista, and have had some problems. I opened up the Start menu, right clicked the Documents folder, clicked the Location tab and selected that I wanted the location to be my external drive (the I drive). When I clicked this, it worked fine. Then I noticed that the Music and Picture folders weren't in the Documents folder, so I thought I would have to move them seperately. When I tried doing that with the Pictures folder, it messed everything up, it changed the Documents folder and Music folder to be the same folder, even though that wasn't the way I wanted it. I can't seem to get it the way I want it, where the Documents folder is the root directory of the external I drive, and the Music folder and Pictures folder is located in their respective folders, but on the external hard drive. Could someone please help me set it up this way?
Thanks in advance for any help.
