I had originally moved the default documents location in Windows 7 to a documents folder inside the dropbox folder.  I want to set it back to the default location but that option is now grayed out. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Never mind, I finally worked it out by uninstalling Dropbox and then creating a new Documents folder and moving all the data that was in the Dropbox folder back to the Documents folder and then changing the default Documents folder to the folder that I created.
