I have vista and my data hard drive died.  I set all my document as a target on my other hard drive.  How do I set that target back to the C drive without the data drive working??

I had a setup of two small fast drives in Raid 0 for OS and Software.  >these work fine
1 large hard drive to handle all Data. >dead

Music, Pictures, Documents, all gone, i dont care, i have backup.  Just want to point the default location back to functioning hard drives.

Right click on the Documents folder, select Properties. Change the Target Location Path back to your C: drive.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders contains folder paths for the currently logged on user.

Thanks, the registry edit worked.  <Vista is not the same as XP, the individual doc folders are different>
