Windows 7: MS Changed pst Location in 2010

MS Changed pst Location in 2010

I'm sure most of you know, but I just did a fresh install of Office 2010 without my previous install of 2007 and noticed that the pst location has changed to 'C:\Users\Name\Documents\Outlook Files\'.
This is a very sensible move as a lot of users had no idea about the pst hidden away in 'AppData\Local\....'.
I wonder how that will affect some backup apps, etc.

Since most backup apps will also backup the documents folder, its not going to be a big issue. Its a GREAT change.
