    When I had a small SSD for my OS boot I moved My Documents to my P: drive.

    My SSD died and I have moved to a Velociraptor HDD of 170Gb.

    I now want to set my My Documents back to the original default.

    I seem to remember a utilty I once had that allowed the user to re-assign 'special' folders but I can't remember what it was.

    Anyone know the name OR

    How do I do it without? Registry Hack?

    No 3rd party software needed:

    To restore the My Documents folder to its default location, follow these steps:
    Click Start, and then point to My Documents.
    Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
    Click Restore Default, and then click OK.
    In the Move Documents box, click Yes to move your documents to the new location, or click No to leave your documents in the original location.
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
