    Folder Redirection (XP Pro)

    I've just bought a new PC that has XP Pro pre-installed. I have created a separate disk partition for storing data (as distict from software) and want to move My Documents etc to this partition. Windows Help says I can use the Group Policy Editor to redirect special folders. I have followed the instructiuons for opening the GPE, but the "Redirect Special Folders" item, supposedly under User Configuration/Windows is missing. How do I get it back? Do I have to create a Group Policy Object for each user, and if so how? I don't use domains, just setting up a simple peer-peer network between old (Win 98) & new PCs.

    BTW the Search facility seems to have disappeared from my Lounge page, so I can't easily see if this topic has been covered already.

    Thanks Lief - that seems to work OK. But . . .will Windows let me move all the other stuf that is under Documents and SettingsUsername? I have also moved Temporary Internet Files off the Windows partition, but Cookies are left behind.

    The "search function" has been disabled for some time now due to overloading problem in the Lounge itself. Until a new server locationsite is found it will probably remain so. All of the Loungers miss this ability, but we have to live without it for a while. ( not too long I hope ) <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    If memory serves, cookies don't get moved when you change the folder. Try moving them manually with IE closed to the new location you selected.
