thx brink for you reply, but I didn't explain well....

1) I login and autostart script is launched. part of the script is to mount the truecrypt partition where the folders of my libraries are

2) I enter the password to mount the partition

--> Result regarding the libraries: the folders of the libraries appear as "white icons" and the links to the folders on the truecrypt partition do not work

When I delete all libaries and restore the defaults, all is fine and the folders on the truecrypt partition are found, links to work. To delete and restore the defaults are manual steps I'd like to have done automatically.

I managed so far to scipt the deletion of the different libraries:

SLUtil Delete Documents
SLUtil Delete Pictures
SLUtil Delete Music
SLUtil Delete Videos
What does not work is the "restore default libraries" I would appreciate a solution that can be triggered by a script

Ah, I see now.

I'm afraid that I don't know of a way to "Restore default libraries" via script or command.
