Windows 7: Merging locations in the library

Merging locations in the library

I'm trying to figure out a way to merge different locations in the library.





I want the anime and movie locations to merge without having to copy them to other hard drives to where the others are. Having to do that would defeat the purpose of the library feature in the first place.

Does anyone know a way?

These are the folder you currently have in your Videos library:

G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos\Anime
G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos\Cartoons
G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos\Movies
G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos\Red Vs. Blue
E:\My Videos\Movies
E:\My Videos\Anime
D:\Anime

Now, if you want to merge those that exist in G:, you need to remove all 4 from the library and add only "G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos"

The same will apply to the E: folders. Remove both of them, then add only "E:\My Videos"

If you want to merge "D:\Anime" with one of the others, then the only way would be to move those files to another drive (to a folder that IS in the Videos library already).

Following the above, you should then have the following folders only in your Videos library:

G:\Blakes Documents\My Videos
E:\My Videos
D:\Anime

Change the "arrange by" from folder to something else.
