Windows 7: Default user folders after windows install

Default user folders after windows install

Hi,

I haven't found an answer to this, so here's my question as simple as it may sound to some.
I'd just like to know if it is a problem to delete the user folders that were created by windows (My Music, My Pictures, My Videos....etc).
I would rather have my user folders standardized across both my different operating systems and that includes having no spaces.
Is that an issue on windows 7? Does it expect those specific folders it created to be there?

Thanks..

Giblets welcome


Those specific folders are called libraries in win 7. You can remove folders from them, disable them, or other combinations thereof. See the tutorials here on Seven Forums

You can name them and locate them pretty much wherever you like (with certain restrictions)

Though not particularly dangerous I still urge a backup before just in case.

Ok, Thanks for the help...... I just put the Windows on, so they are currently empty.
