Windows 7: Moving All Public Folders

Moving All Public Folders

I was wondering if you can move your public folders to a different drive? My public folder is on my C drive which is my SSD drive. Can I move them to my storage drive D drive and if so how would I do it?

You could move folders Documents, Music, Pictures etc. inside Public folder by right clicking particular folder - Properties - Location tab

Thanks - but I think you have to do this 'http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/move-button-missing-location-tab-for-public-folders-in-vista/' for Public Folders?

I wonder why Microsoft don't make this easy - it's very desireable to have O/S & S/W on a small but fast SSD and documents on a big HDD these days.

By the way - I followed the instructions at teh above link and it worked fine, except that when I navigate to 'Public Music' in iTunes, it still points to the old C:\Drive location.

Why not just move the files somewhere else and share them with everybody?

Hapy to share with all, but just want to see 'Public Music' anytime I select 'Public Music' in any application. Right now, I do see the relocated Public Music (on my J:\Drive) when I press Start / Music / Public Music, but I don't when I try to navigate to it in one of the iTunes drop-downs.

Thanks....

Ah! I don't know how itunes picks up its files. Would including the folder in the Music library help?
