    Move My Music/My Pictures to WIN 7

    I have my 'My Music and My Pictures/Videos' on separate partitions in WIN XP Pro. How do I link these files to WIN7 without having to load the files into MY Documents and then move them back to separate partitions? I hope this is an easy fix. Bob

    Hello isthf- Welcome to the Lounge!

    Is this only one computer with a dual boot of Win7 and WinXP Pro?
    Can you see the XP files thru Win Explorer while in Win7?

    Your post reads as though the partition with the music,pics, & video is going to be available on the Win7 setup. If this is the case the easiest thing to add the folders to the appropriate Windows 7 Library. This will not change the default save locations for the various types. If you wish to change the locations of the Windows 7 "My Pictures" etc., right click the folder, select Properties, then the Location tab. Enter the new location.

    Hello tfspry:
    I am dual booting both OS's. Win 7 sees the other partitions and I can access them through Win Explorer and My Computer. The problem I see is Win 7 has both of those files in it's My Documents. Won't this cause problems if I want to add files in Win 7?
