Windows 7: Moving storage location of libraries

it's a bit of a hairy job trying to move the whole user folder - a lot easier just to move the individual music/videos/pictures subfolders etc

also be aware that in xp, 'my documents' contained the other folders - in 7, documents is a separate folder.

hope this helps!
