Move back My Documents Folder to Root Directory

Hi to all, hope this is simple. Awhile back i moved the folder or pointed my documents folder to another drive(external one) for it to back up. Now my friend does not like it since she has two my documents folder, one on the c drive and the other on the backup drive. How simple is it to move everything back to c: drive, and if so, how do i do it again, just move backup drive to c:drive. Thanks all for the help.

Basically the same, but the REG files are different on a few, so you should use the tutorial below instead for Vista.
