Windows 7: adding folder and drive shortcuts to task bar

adding folder and drive shortcuts to task bar

On XP, I would put shortcuts to my different hard drives and folders on the taskbar for quick access. Seems like Windows 7 task bar doesn't let me do this and only allows me to put program files only (yes task bar is unlocked).

is there a way to add hard drive and folder short cuts?
