Prior to getting a new machine with XP, I had always kept my Office data in a subdirectory of it's own for easy backup. When I moved my data to the XP machine, I did the same.
However, XP seems to insist on keeping things in "My Documents", apparently as duplicate entries, because the files load and save from my personal default folders as they should. Never had this happen in Win98...
Are 2 copies being saved, or is My Documents pointing to the real files in the right location and supplying a list anyway? It's almost like it's got an "attitude" because I went behind it's back!
