Windows 7 Liabraries

Hi, in Windows XP, all of my folders (including Music, Pictures and Videos), resided in My Documents folder.  This made it very easy to back everything up by just copying that folder.  Is that possible in Windows 7?  Right now they seem to be in separate directories/librariesPic-2.JPG (see pic). Thanks

Carlos,
Expand Documents by clicking the little triangle in front of it. The first item under it should be My Documents, which is probably what you're looking for. Regards, Joe

In Vista onwards, the folders you refer to lie alongside and not within the Documents folder.
On the properties of the individual special folders, you'll see you can change their location if you really need to.

By default you profile folders are located in
C:\user\%userprofile%
Also, in libraries are included folders from public folder
C:\user\public
I usually exclude public folders from library folder for many reasons.

As cantoris already wrote  - you can move all folders to wherever you want.
I usually move all folders from inside %userprofile% to D:\  (except Desktop and Contacts folders, and I don't touch hidden folders too) so I don't need to save those folders in case of reinstall.

Okay, almost there.  Now my Music, Pictures and Videos are where I want them.  Only problem left is that I can drag the information all the way to the left so I ended up with a small partial view of Favorites.  I don't want to see that column. Pic-1.JPG

Carlos,
Click the Organize drop-down, then Layout, then un-tick Navigation Pane. That will remove it. Regards, Joe
