    try this

    Select a folder from the drop-down list box.
    in the edit box you can see current path for the selected item.Type the new path in the edit box, click Apply To relocate the special folder. You can backup the existing configuration to a file.this utility does not move the files to the new location (redirected path). It has to be done manually.

    To restore the default path for the chosen shell folder, click the Restore Default button once.

    Relocating the Shared Documents folder

    Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe

    Navigate to the following branch:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ User Shell Folders

    In the right-pane, look for the entry named Common Documents and double-click it. To relocate the shared documents folder, type the new path (say D:\SharedDocs) in the text box provided. The default Value data is %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents
