Windows 7: Moved default Location .. what about Libraries ?

Moved default Location .. what about Libraries ?

New OS install W7 64 bit

followed the doc:
User Profile - Change Default Location

Moved user location OK and set the default location for any new users.

In my case it's now E:\users\name

if I go to that location I can drop files and folders in there OK ... but they do not appear in 'Libraries'
Shouldn't they also appear in Libraries ? ..........
is there something else I have to set ?
