The  reasons why the manual folder redirection will not stick is because 1) there is a policy in place that prevents the change or 2) there is something that's already redirecting it to the original location. Are you part of a domain? If so, you can create a GPO and define the folder redirection policy under User Config --> Windows Settings --> Folder Redirection. If you're not part of a domain, something screwey is going on with your workstation because nothing should be changing your redirection.

BTW, when you're redirecting your My Documents, you're right-clicking the folder on the desktop --> properties and then changing the target location right?

Try this

Right click your my documents folder
In the Target box type in the path where you want the folder to point to
Click ok

That should do it.

Hi Sherif,

You need to click the MyDocuments namespace extension in explorer.

1. Open Explorer
2. In the folder tree on the left you should see the MyDocuments folder (not on your D: drive - it should be just under Desktop in the tree)
3. Right click this folder and proceed as above

Let us know what happens
