Windows 7: How do I get all four libraries filed under "users"?

How do I get all four libraries filed under "users"?

When I back up to an external drive (Using Cobian 11) I back up all of my files using this as the source: Computer > OS(C) > Users > markbacon (my name). Under my name (in the Windows Explorer tree), among other things, are names of my four libraries. The documents file has my documents and my pictures file has my pictures, but for some reason the "my music" file is empty.

How can I link the my music library file to the files listed under my name? I could copy and paste but woudn't that create duplicates of all the songs I have?

Thanks

Hello Mark,

That's correct. You don't want to copy and paste them in your Music library. It would create duplicates.

Instead, you would want to include any folder you want into the library.

Library - Include a Folder

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Sorry if I'm missing something. All my music files are filed under the Music Library. I want to link that to the file OS (C > users > markbacon > my music.

Probably the best way would be to moved all the files into your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder, then set the default save location of your Music library to be the "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder.

Library - Set Save Folder

This way everything is in the "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder, anything you save to the Music library will actually be saved to the "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder, and you can access the files from both locations.

Account "Roger" appears as "c:\users\user"
Hi all, I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp). Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. :) )...
