I'm trying to set my Win 7 computer up with OS/programs on a SSD (C:) and data on a hard drive (D:). I've put my data files on the D: drive. When I select a library in the Start menu, it opens an empty folder on the C: drive rather than looking at the occupied folder of the same name on the D: drive. How do I make it look in the right place?

Thanks,
Warren

What folders did you move and how did you move them?

I moved my photos, documents and music. I think it was just click and drag to copy to the D: drive, and after verifying that they were on the D: drive I deleted them from the C: drive. What happened is that when I clicked on one of the libraries, Windows kept looking on the C: drive.

I did finally figure out how to do what I wanted. You click on a library, then click on the area at the top of the right frame that says "includes X locations". That takes you to a dialog box where you can add or remove locations. After I removed the locations on C:, a click on a library takes me to the correct folder on D:.

So, no further assistance needed. :happy:

Thanks,
Warren
