Change Location of Fonts Dir
I'm getting tired of backing up every new Win7 Build so I thought to chuck all my data on my 2nd HDD and that way backups won't be needed.
There's only one thing...Fonts.
I want to change the default C:\Windows\Fonts Dir to D:\Fonts
I have changed the reg entry HKCU/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENTVERSION/EXPLORER/SHELL FOLDERS
and restarted, but there hasn't been a change, all fonts still go to C:\Windows\Fonts.
Is there anyway of doing this?

I think the problem you are having is due to MS's transition to relational database friendly OS. The registry will be non-existent or minimal in future MS operating systems as a result of this transition. The configuration for the system directories is apparently one of the early parts affected.
If this is the case, I don't know how to fix it, but I know where you'll want to look. Your problem will have to do with setting the value of FOLDERID_Fonts (CSIDL_FONTS). I would venture to guess that this is set by some .msc configuration application, likely one in the system32\en-US\ folder.
