I'm using this script about 7 months now and it works great.. Thank you!!!
However it seems to create a strange error in add/remove locations in a library folder... The default folder of documents in my example is referred that it is "not responding" (in add/remove folders in library dialog). However I can access this folder from the library and cannot find where the error is referred to.
If I remove the folder end add again manually the error message disappears. NO VISIBLE ERROR at all. And NO problems with personal folders It is working like it is meant to work with last ones.
Edit: Added picture (sorry for Greek... I own home premium... cannot change language).
At the top says library locations. In the bottom is common videos folder and at the left of the same folder says "not responding" but I cannot understand the real problem. The folder is accesible....

@Pepito Thanks for translating the initial post from French!
They have been changes made as noted in the French language thread:
Most importantly, the French only and Multilingual versions of the script are no longer being updated.
The "ML-S" version is the only that is being updated. The latest at time of this post is ver 4.3 (2011-07-27).
Multilanguage version with security management files:
Here is the version incorporating the safety of the destination folders.
Future changes will only be made to this version.
By default, all files moved, except My Music, are inaccessible to other users not administrators
NOTE: I've enlcosed in brackets "" my edits of the translation.
Integration of security management files.
By default, user folders are only accessible by the user himself and the members of the Administrators group.
[When you only move a user's folders] security is being inherited from the destination folder.[Then you have the problem] that all users have full rights to all files ...
With the script, the [security and permissions] will be the same as the original locations.
PositionDefaultFolderSevenModular.ini file, if the field is AddUsername 3 AND 4 is the field Security,
the following security settings are applied to the relevant files:
[But] the script now does!
Changing the script Jonctions.cmd
Added variable %USERDOMAIN% for the application of safety issues.
The absence of this variable was a problem of access to the Temporary Internet Files folder to a user domain.
See the script jonctions.cmd on line 156

There is one thing that is not done by this modular script that might be important: moving the Public folder.
Fortunately, Alain has another script that handles that. The link to the French thread is listed in the INFO.txt file contained in the rar.
Here's a Google translation:
Information about this script:
To ensure the smooth running of this script,
it is advisable to restart your PC and run this script directly in administrator mode.
After running this script, the connections to the public folder in the library to be built to date.
(only for users already on the PC. The future users will have their libraries correct)
