This way you can create a folder named what and where you like for this instead without the risk of messing up your user folders.

Yes, you can change your G drive letter to I, but only do so if you do not have anything (ex: shortcuts) that run or save automatically to the G drive. If you do and change the drive letter, then they will no longer work since they are still looking for the G drive. Use caution.

You should have no issue with changing your DVD's E letter to Z.

Hope this helps,

dear brink hi...

um i've decided to do clean install for my laptop from zero (since it's long overdue anyway), i've used this tutorial in the past when i first install my windows

User Folders - Change Default Location

however at that time, i didn't rename the my videos etc folders, i just moved it.

Now, i'd like to ask, if i do clean install of my laptop now, when i point to new location say, the "my pictures" from C to "new folders" on E, is it possibleto rename the "new folders" on E to like "something music" instead of the same "my music"

i apologize for the not concise english on my part...

have a great day,
