Windows 7: "Properties - Location" Tab gone after TrueCrypt install

"Properties - Location" Tab gone after TrueCrypt install

Long story short:

I installed W7 and encrypted 3 partitions. I store data on one of these 3 (the biggest one) and thus I changed the Locations of my files to this partitions (like /users/junior/Downloads -> D:/Downloads). Problem is, I forgot that TrueCrypt mounts it's volumes with different letters each boot, and when I tried to open 'My Pictures' folder, it was empty. I then tried to change it's location to the (now favorited, with permanent letter) Data partition, but no "Location" tab is displayed.

Explanation:

* Open Start Menu; Go to my name right above "Documents" (Júnior).
* Click "Properties" on My Documents folder. http://imageshack.us/a/img23/893/koim.png
* There's no option to change it's Location. http://imageshack.us/a/img833/6030/xief.png

Any help?

Regards,

Amarildo.

If you're comfortable with editing the registry, you can go to:
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
to change the path to point to the right folders.
See this screenshot for more detail
