    My Documents to different share

    For the sake of e.g. backing-up personal info I've partitioned my HD in some parts. Next step is to have WinXP (home) move & use my (and all other users' AND the ALL_USERS) document directories from C: to E:
    Then I only should really backup E: in the future to have all our info secure.

    I'm assuming this is really simple but to date, I could not find the way to do this.

    Anyone who could tip me here?

    Thanks,

    Erik Jan

    Thanks Leif! That was quick; I'll try that (and am sure it'll do what I was looking for)!

    Now that we're at it: do you happen to know why some of my start-menu entries get an orange background?

    Thanks again Leif... I'm sorry for being so lazy and not thinking about going out to the MS KB myself...

    Along this same line, how can the "Documents and Settings" folder be moved to another drive?

    I want to MOVE ALL users and all documents and settings to the new drive.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
