Windows 7: Moving my documents folder to another hard drive question

Moving my documents folder to another hard drive question

Hiya

This might be a bit of a dumb question but I just want to check is it safe to directly cut and paste the my favorites, documents, pictures, music and video folders to another hard drive on my PC or I should do them manually through properties of each folder. Currently I'm using windows 7.

Sorry for my awkward tone and many thanks in advance.

Hi Lemon Tree

If you want all your user folder links to work correctly you are best doing each one through the properties.
