Re: Redirect folders in Windows XP

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

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

In the right pane, do the following:

* Create a REG_SZ value named CommonMusic and set the path
