Windows 7: Change "My Videos" location

Windows 7 32bit
Change "My Videos" location

My hard drive is partitioned into 2 150gb parts. My 1st part is getting full, so i had an idea to keep all my movies and videos (roughly 90gb) in the 2nd part, and everything else in the 1st part.

How would i be able to move all my videos and movies to the 2nd part, but still have them located in the "My Videos" tab in windows explorer? thanks

make a folder for your videos on the second partition, then right click on your my videos folder and select location, then browse to the new location.

In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon. Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?
