How do I undo My Documents redirection to a server directory that is setup for offline use (Synchronization)
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a laptop that is running Windows XP and that has its My Documents folder pointing to the user directory on a Windows Server. This user directory is setup on the laptop for Offline Synchronization.
The drive on the server that has this directory has crashed and is no longer available. As a result, each time I try to delete a directory I get an error that says I cannot do that untill I am connected to the server. But since that drive is not available, I cannot connect.
At this point, I simply want to have my My Document folder point to the typical location on my local C: drive. But when I go into Properties for My Documents, it does not let me change the target location of the My Document folder. I am guessing that this has something to do with the fact that I am not connected to the server and that this is another example of a setting that is locked down until you are connected. But again, I cannot connect because the drive is no longer available.
Simple question: Do any of you know how I can change the My Documents target directory from the Server directory to my C: drive WITHOUT having to connect to that directory first?
Thank you in advance for your help.
