Windows 7: Redefining User Folder Path

Redefining User Folder Path

When a user logs in a Windows 7 box, on the desktop, there is a folder with the user's name. Within that folder, you will find sub folders such as : My Documents, My Music, My Pictures and My Videos, just to name a few.

The location of the folder is C:\users\user_name

What I would like to do is redefine the path, where the folder and files are now located on an external hard drive. This would be useful when my company updates my workstation, I can unplud the external with my data and then plug it in to the new system.

Can this be done?
