How can I make it in Windows 7 so that a certain folder path will automatically be substituted with a different folder path whenever a program looks for files in the original folder path location?
I performed a Windows Easy Transfer from a Windows XP SP 3 computer to a Windows 7 64-bit SP1 computer.
All of the files have been copied from the Windows XP SP 3 computer to the exact same folder path on the new Windows 7 computer.
The only difference is that Windows 7 uses the C:\Users folder instead of the C:\Documents and Settings folder.
As a result, after I have installed Adobe Photoshop Album on the new Windows 7 computer and have imported the Catalog, Adobe Photoshop on the new Windows 7 computer is now looking for the pictures in the exact same location that they were in on the old Windows XP computer. Since it can't find these pictures in the exact same folder path that they were located in before (Windows XP used the C:\Docuemnts and Settings\Robert folder while Windows 7 is now using the C:\Users\Robert folder) Adobe Photoshop Album searches the entire Windows 7 hard drive and finds the pictures in the new location. This search takes around 2 minutes to complete and once the new path to the pictures is found, I click on the "Reconnect" button so that the Adobe Photoshop Album now looks in the new and correct folder path for the pictures.
Since the user has over 55,000 pictures that are cataloged within Adobe Photoshop Album, this will obviously be a very long and tedious process of having Adobe Photoshop Album manually search the entire hard drive every time that it can't find the pictures in the old folder locations.
I'm looking for a Windows command or a utility that I can purchase and install on this new Windows 7 computer so that I will be able to substitute the old folder path of C:\Documents and Setting\Robert to the new folder path of C:\Users\Robert. I have tried to use the SUBST command, but this command doesn't work.
So, what methods within Windows 7 or Windows 7 utilities are available that will allow me to do this?
Please let me know if any further information is needed.
