Dreamweaver file paths on windows XP

  tearingmyhairout 19:26 18 Jun 03


I've just bought a new note book with XP home loaded on it, but I've noticed that the "My Documents" folder has a rather long prefix including the name of the shop that I bought it from, I've since found out that this is normal because that's apparently how XP is set up?!

The annoying thing is that I can't upload any web pages because I've been told that Dreamweaver remembers the original file paths and unfortunately I saved them on my old computer in the "My Documents" folder.

I must confess as you might gather that I am not that familiar with file paths, folders and directories, and I just don't know what to do.

Would some kind person please explain in layman's terms how I could get over this problem.

Try re-naming the My Documents to its standard name and drop the long prefix.

I use Dreamweaver and am not aware of it remembering file paths as you describe. Use Sites > Define Sites to add your sites from whatever folder you want. Keith

thanks for the help keith, I tried renaming "My Documents" without the prefix, but it wouldn't accept it because it was the default name. In the end I solved it by creating a "My Documents" folder in the hard drive and forgetting about the other, and everthing is now fine.
