Windows 7: Music, Video, Pictures Sharing?

22 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Music, Video, Pictures Sharing?

I am trying to minimize the writing that will go on in the C: boot partition so that I will not "wear out" my SSD Drive. I have changed the Partition Location for the My Documents, My Pictures and My Videos folders. My Documents worked OK but My Pictures and My Videos now have two entries shown in my user account. One with a My prefix and one without. It appears that the entries without the My are Shared and cannot be deleted. What do I have to change in the Network Sharing to allow me to delete the "unused" folder entries. Will this cause a problem - I will share the "My" prefixed folders on the new partition?

I havn't tried to move those folders to seperate drives so can't give you exact instructions on this. But have you tried to take ownership of the extra folders? You may need to go into the drive where you moved them too first.
