Hi Experts!

How can I make my own C:\TEST as system folder
which when you press delete will show message dialog

"Documents and Settings is a Window system folder and is required for Windows to run properly. It cannot be
deleted."

I know former this will use registry! But i'm not sure..

Can someone give me an advise?


Thanks...

Surprisingly, you do not need to use the registry. :-)

This page should help:

When copying strings from the above page, make sure that the special folder extension starts with ".{" (including the dot) and ends with "}", and delete any blank character that gets copied after the "}".

The registry values shown can be edited to change the path of any system folder.
