Hey all...i was reading through some of these posts and i think i have a
similar problem. Basically i was trying to move my data off of the main
partition (a common request). So i was moving/changing the Location (in
properties from the start menu) and now the start menu folders are totally
broken. Pictures and Music icons in the start menu now dont work at all.

How can i just point those to my other partition? They dont work at all
now....no choice to "move" or change location...they're jsut dead.

Is there a reg key or something i can edit?

Ok i think i found the reg keys, there are two of them and seems to be
working...perhaps some from msoft can confirm I think the the two paths that
contain the file directories are as follows:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
Folders

AND


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders

I changed these values to point to my custom directories and all seems to be
working just fine!
