    Redirecting User folder to another drive or partition in Win 7

    Hello,

    Back in the days of XP it was possible to point your My Docs to another drive or partition. Is there a way to do this in Win 7? So far I have not been fortunate enough to find the answer.


    Thanks,

    Hello,
    Just go to the following section
    Under the Tab setting -> "Also apply redirection policy to Windows XP". This is the option that you have to check. This will also automatically change the pictures , videos etc of the folder. About directing the folder you can choose a single same domain for both the operating systems windows xp and windows NT for example.
