invalid default in Properties for Documents folder
update: I just started searching the registry and am finding a bunch of references to F:\, F:\bill, etc. Seems like some kind of bug to me, but anyway hopefully changing those will solve the issue... I'll leave the post here in case it may help someone else...
Hello ... I think this is a strange one
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate replacing a Vista x64 installation. My user files are located on a RAID array attached to a RAID card. When I first configured Windows 7, it set up that RAID drive as drive F:. I subsequently changed the Properties using Set Save Location to point my default "Documents" location to F:\bill\Documents.
Subsequently I changed the RAID drive letter in the Storage Manager. I went back to Library->properties again and updated the Set Save Location to point to the new location (S:\bill\documents).
Here's the problems that still exist:
1. If i use "Restore Defaults" in that dialog, it brings back F:\bill as the path for My Documents.
2. Regardless of what I have set in Properties, certain applications use F:\bill\documents as the default location. This includes the Akamai download manager (downloading Adobe products) and the installer for Cloudmark (spam filter).
I've checked all of my environment variables (they all point to the right places) and everything else I can think of to see where that incorrect default F:\bill is still defined. It should be S:\bill, not F:\bill.
Do you have any ideas where this could be stuck?
