Greetings experts,

this is a repost of a question I found and would like an answer to.. Thanks in advance for your help:

I'm am using Sync Center to sync a network folder to my laptop, but there is nothing in Sync Center that let's me specify where I want the synced files to be located.  Can you let me know the following:
1.How to tell Sync Center where I want the files located
2.Where does Sync Center put synced files be default
3.Once my files are synced (10 GB) can I move them again?

Usually, they are put in your profile, in the My Documents folder.

Nothing in the Document folder.  I made sure there were no hidden files.

I found this, http://www.ehow.com/how_6386031_change-directory-windows-mobile-center.html
It includes instructions on where to search in the registry for the path and how to change it.

This didn't work.  Trying to find the actual folder on the Windows 7 machine that syncs my share folder from the server.  Would like to backup the folder from my computer, not the server.

I guess no one knows the answer to this, so I'll close it up.
