Moving My Documents

  mark-pc 14:59 28 Nov 10

I have partitioned my C drive and intend to use the newly formed E drive for data. i have tried to move the My Documents folder to E which I have done, but the operation has left the default My Documents under the desktop in Explorer. When I click on these they are not accessible - Access denied. How can I move these to E?

How did you move it? Assuming it's XP, did you use this method click here? G

The 'My Documents' shortcut on the desktop is just that - a shortcut, which is pointing to the now non-existent old location by the looks of it.

Try this: Delete the My Documents shortcut on the desktop. Then Start > right-click My Documents > select 'Show on Desktop'. G

Or if you just tried to grab hold of the My Documents folder and drag it to E - that won't work either. You need to use the method in Crossbow7's link above.

No.......didn't use the correct method. I'll do that thank you.
