I have a new computer with Vista Home Premium and I moved some of the Public Folders (Public Documents, Music, Pictures) from C to D, as instructed by Microsoft at this link When you try to move a public folder in Windows Vista, the Move button may be missing

I want to be able to share these folders from their new location with the other computers in my home network, so I turned on the Public Folder sharing in the Network and Sharing Center.

However, in the Network and Sharing Center the only public folders recognized are the ones still at the original location - C:\Users\Public\Favorites and C:\ ...\Public Desktop (hidden files) and ...\Recorded TV.

I have spent a few hours searching for the answer to this on the internet. In this version of Vista Home Premium, there is NOTthe option to change the letter of the directory in the registry by changing the key called public as suggested by the How To Geek at this link Move the Public Folder in Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek

How To Geek says:"Browse down to this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
You should see a key called Public. Double-click it to open it and change it to D:\Public, or whatever location you want to move the public folder to."Note - Vista Home Premium does NOT have a Public key.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Thanks so much in advance.

I've had this problem for a few months, just lived with it. In the attached screen shots, you will see I have no folder trees in any of the pop up Add, Move, or Copy pop ups in Explorer and Windows Media Player. I have no clue if this can be restored to show again. This has happened before I upgraded Media Player so it shouldnt be that. I'm thinking Windows Corruption somewhere. I have not and do not have any malware on this machine or any other that I have networked. My system is clean and runs 1000%. Any ideas on how I can restore the folder trees?

Hi, this is may seem to be a bit of a dumb question but I'm having trouble figuring it out on my own. My wife and I have our own respective PCs both with Vista in our home. My PC has three Hard Disks in it. I have our computers networked together through a router. Now I have all of our photographs on one of the hard drives other than my primary OS hard drive to save space. Now I've recently tried to make a shortcut to the photographs on my secondary hard drive, in the public folder and my wife's computer doesn't "see" any shortcuts. Is there any way to run a shortcut to a different drive in the public folder or do I have to physically copy all the photos into the public folder on my primary hard drive in order to make them available via the network? Also does anything you put in your public folder make it so that it's physically taking up space twice on your HDD? Thanks for any help in advance! I appretiate it!

I have two network cards in my PC. One of them connects to the internet while the other connects to my home network.

The issue is enabling public folders for the home network in "Network and Sharing Center" enables public folders for the public network also. In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

Disabling public folders under public network settings disables public folders for the home network also, preventing people on my local area network from accessing my PC.

Refer this screenshot if you don't get my problem: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6878074832/

In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

A:Cannot turn off "Public Folder Sharing" for public network

I think it's because you set up a Public Network as your first interface. Because of this it may not be possible to turn off the Public file sharing option.

You don't need to use both interfaces to share the wireless connection with your wife. You can do that with a single interface by just setting up a Home Network on one of the interfaces then sharing out from that interface using software to make it easier like Connectify.

Hi Theodore,

Welcome to TSG!

Try this to see if it works:
Goto the folder NetHood.
Click on the folder "My Documents" once to highlight it.
In the left-hand panel choose Move this folder which should bring up a window display and in that display goto: C:\Documents and Settings
where several accounts should be displayed
Select your account to highlight the move to location
C:\Documents and Settings\<your account>
Select Ok in the Move window display panel and
the My Documents folder should be back where it belongs.

To check this out, select Start>My Documents to see if all is well.

If not, repeat the procedure with a different account. One of them should work.

I have a solid state drive with limited capacity so I would like Public folders to be on another hard drive. I'm able to change the location of the regular My Documents, My Pictures, etc. to the other drive but not the Public folders. Its curious because when I open up the properties for these Public folders it shows the existing location and there is a note saying you can change the location ..., but there is not a move button nor can you change what is listed in the location text box. So how do you change the location?

A:How to move location of Public folders to another harddrive

You can just move the folder(s) itself. But there is really nothing to be gained. It is just a few peanut bytes.

If you delete the hiberfile and reduce the pagefile to 1GB, you can gain a LOT more.

I am having trouble with mkv files. Before you ask, yes I can play them fine with vlc media player. I also can delete them easily with a unlocker program. My problem is once an mkv file is on my computer I cannot move it. In case you are wondering this happens with every mkv file. They are not corrupt in any way. For some reason Windows Explorer decides to lock them up (when I use lock hunter it says that the mkv file is in use by Windows Explorer). I have looked at a lot of tech forums but it's always people that need help deleting. The few that I have found where people need help moving them, there problem is always solved because they didn't realize their external hard drive had to be converted from FAT to NTFS. It seems no one has the answer to this.

If this problem can't be solved this is my second question. What happens if I convert the mkv file to an avi or something else? Will it mess with the file at all? Will it erase the subtitles or something? I've heard an mkv file is special because it can store subtitles and lots of other things. I'm thinking if I can convert it to something else then it will allow me to move it around from folder to folder. Not really wanting to test it out on a file that took half a day to download heh. I suppose I could test it on a smaller mkv file but then I would not be sure if it would work with a larger one.

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

I have a folder with several sub-folders with hundreds of files within those sub-folders. Is there any script/batch commands that would allow me to move all these files into one folder.

It would save me having to go into each one of these folders and copy/paste them into the new directory.

If there is no easy way to write a script/batch file (BTW I know very little about writing Windows scripts..) can you recommend a third party application that can help me.

Greetings,

Am running Outlook 2007 on Windows 7 x64. Small Solid State system drive. Large data drives.

After recovering from the dreaded recurring "Enter Network Password" hassle, I enabled IMAP (instead of POP) on my gmail account. (My Yahoo Plus account works fin with POP settings.) Now I see that in addition to my regular Inbox folder, I have a new folder called gmail, and it contains the subscribed sub-directories, or sub-folders.

It appears that the gmail folder resides on my smallish SSD on C:/USERS/MyName/<something> ... I would like to move that folder, or re-configure it if needed onto my D: drive since I know the gmail folder will grow.

I have learned that one small error in an Outlook setup can lead to DAYS of head-scratching and internet searching interspersed with too much trial-and-error (emphasis on the error), so I sure would love to learn the correct steps and do it right the first time.

I also want my mail to be displayed in my regular Inbox, not some other folder. I am running ODIR (Outlook Duplicate Items Remover) at this time so I can't really confirm that my mail from both Yahoo and gmail are arriving into the regular inbox. I dare not touch Outlook while this is running because it needs to remove perhaps 10,000 duplicates (created once I fixed the broken mail problem).

I know I am due for a good archiving session, but don't want to confuse the issues. I'm confused enough! lol?

TIA

A:Firefox, Yahoo: How to move bookmarks folder out of another folder?

Organize favorites is for IE. For Firefox you can restore your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, click Show All Bookmarks, click the Import and Backup button, click Restore, click Choose File and then navigate to and select the .json file that was moved. Firefox will place a copy of the .json file (which are your bookmarks) back to the default folder. If you want, you can select a recent backup copy from the drop down list instead of choose file. That would save you a few clicks.

After restoring your bookmarks you can delete the accidentally moved file.

Hi.

I have a boot drive which is 250gb (My C drive). I have Win 7 and some apps on it.
I have installed Steam on my other hard drive. So far most games have been cooperative and install their folders close to Steam!

However, one game in particular (Empire Total War) has installed one of its folders in "C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly".

From experience from my old PC, I know this folder (The Creative Assembly) can grow to close to 20gb in a matter of a year. I don't want that to happen and therefore thought of relocating, moving, or redirecting this folder (The Creative Assembly) to another location.

How do I do that and is that recommended? (I could simply go ahead and do this right now, but I would rather get some expert opinions first before any instabilities in my system).

Thank you.

A:Move a folder within the appdata/roaming folder to another location?

If you attempt to move the folder any programs dependant on that folder would have to know where to look for it, if you do attempt it i would leave the original in situ and copy/paste to new drive then attempt to redirect program if it fails then you still have original

Im not familiar with steam but as long as you can redirect the games save file path to new location if you have that option then i dont see why you cant do it

Sometimes I can just grab the folder that I copied from another machine and placed in My Videos and just

Hi,

I'm new to this sort of thing so I hope I do this right!

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP3.

Recently, I noticed when I tried to move to/copy to from the Explorer window, my folder tree was blank in the little box that pops up. Regardless of whether I use the links to the left of the window or if I go into Edit - Copy To (or Move To), it happens with anything involving the explorer - documents, photos, etc. The only changes made recently was I had made an account on the computer for my kids, then deleted it not long after, without saving their folders (because they never used the account). Any other changes (installing programs, etc) happened after I noticed the blank box. It's not a major issue but it is slightly annoying.

Any ideas? And thank you ahead of time!

I remember with Vista, this folder had multiple entries and they were not mine(probably came with new laptop, like bloat ware?). I was clueless then (with Vista)what that folder was about...and I'm still in the dark(with W7) .

A:What's The Public Folder?...and what to do with it?

Hello Pappi,

The "Public" folders, are basically folders that the public (all users) have full access to by default. They basically set to be shared by "Everyone" making it easier to share files between users on the local PC and network easy to do by simply putting a file in one of the Public folders.

Empty Public folders do not take up any space. They are not a security risk since they only have access to what you place in the Public folders.

It's just a personal choice if you want to have Public folder sharing turned on or off.

Here's some more details below on all this if you like.

I used to have messed up file sharing settings because the printer wouldnt work but they were alright because whoever looked into my Computer in the network would only find a Public folder. (w/o passwords)

Now, i reinstalled windows, and whenever somenoe looks into my computer under the network, they have to enter a password and once they do, they can access not only the public folder, but all my documents under my folder. (Users/MyStuff)

the sharing folder is Users so people can see everything inside Users if they have my password.

What i want to do is let them only access the Public folder WITHOUT my password.

That way, if i have something that needs to be transferred, i'll just drop it on in the public folder, and someone can take it.

Hi,

Also, i use vista and my other network computers are on xp. I noticed on one of them, i can give it files and but i cannot take files from it onto my computer.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/172301-public-folder-icons-restore-default-icon.html

The website basically had me do shell commands, and replace the desktop.ini file for each folder...It just so happens that this website was designed for windows vista, not windows 7, so I think that I messed something up. Cause ever since then my programs have not been running correctly.

Hi People,

Has anyone noticed that the folder icon for "Public Documents" is small, and can't be resized to extra large, or large like the other Public folder icons? I've noticed this on my two vista machines, and was wondering if anyone else noticed this? Or if I just stuffed something.

Cheers!

About a week ago I have to format my computer due to a nasty virus causing me to not be able to connect to the internet(scanned with a few programs, safe mode, nothing got rid of it). Everything works find now other then the fact that when I go to access my computer on the Work Network, It shows up blank. I can't drop anything into it, other people can view my computer on the network, but they can't drop any files either. All the sharing settings are on, no password is in place and I've been searching the web for the past two hours trying to find a solution and I have unfortunately come up blank.

There are separate Advanced file sharing settings which refer specifically to the Public folders so that needs to be enabled.

Besides that you should make sure that you have enabled sharing for the Public folders by going to C:>Users>Public folder, and enable sharing through the Sharing tab. You should also make sure that the C:>Users folder is shared out through the Sharing tab as well.

Evening all,

Just looking for some advice regarding the public folder in windows. I have windows 7 on my desktop which is wired to my router and my laptop running vista wireless and on both machines i deleted the public folders in the users folder as i never had any intention of sharing anything. I did this a while ago now so there is no way of restoring it via a system restore. My main question is im looking to share some music files between my laptop and desktop with the files being on the desktop machine, could i create just another basic folder and share it that way? if so how would i go about doing it?

Im kinda new to the whole sharing thing so any help would be much appreciated

many thanks

I assume you already have your computers in the same Homegroup. If so, you should be able to right click the folder you want to share, go to "Share with" in the context menu, and should be able to select either Read or Read/Write.

I wanted to move the Public Folder from C:\Users to D:\, so I simply copied the folder, delete the original, and created a symbolic link (with -mklink-). A little knowledge was a dangerous thing - apparently I should have used -robocopy- to ensure the copy of Public had the correct characteristics. So, is there a way to fix D:\Public so that it has the correct permissions of a "Public" folder? If not, is there a way to recreate the original C:\Users\Public? I am not concerned about any data in this folder, as there was (so far) none there.

Apologies if this has been addressed here before, I tried searching the forums but with no luck. Thanks.

I have a user who is the only one having a problem with this calendar. There is a calendar setup in Public Folders and 20 or 30 user's have access to it. When she accesses it using the Outlook 2000 client all of the appt's and stuff are srewed up. When she accesses it using OWA everything is fine. Just for fun I logged into my PC as her and setup her profile and the problem in the client persisted. I was surprised as I thought it was a problem on her computer. It doesn't look that way at all now. I was thinking of renaming her local Windows 2K user profile and than logging off and logging back on as her so that a new local Windows 2K user profile would be created on that machine.

By design, unless you are accessing OWA through a front-end server (and not directly via a back-end server), you will not be able to use the Reply, Reply All, or Forward functions for messages contained in public folders.

Any suggestions for improving the response (other than faster computers and LAN)?

I have an interesting situation where when I load files from my sign on to the public pictures folder my wife can't always view them from her's. We are both admin and I am forced to right click and do the advanced settings routine to each file and add her to it with full control. As I'm sure you can see this is very annoying.

Thanks for any help in this matter

A:making the public folder accessible to all users

Are you sharing across a network or is it to share the public folder locally?

By default the public folder should be accessible to everyone with full permissions - C:\Users\Public

Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

When installing programs most place their shortscuts in the Public folder instead of placing them in the user folder. What am i doing wrong? I never had this problem with Windows 8.

A:The shortcuts of installed programs goes to the Public folder

You aren't doing anything wrong. It is up to the author of the installer where they put shortcuts.

Almost all put them in public start menu and most put them on public desktop too (although you can often opt out of that).

Unless you have a choice (almost never) then all you can do is move the shortcuts manually from %programdata% to %appdata% and delete them from the public desktop if necessary.

I set up a network a while ago and it worked seamlessly between my two computers--a desktop and a laptop, both running Windows 7. The laptop would connect to the network by accessing the wireless internet that both computers use. My laptop is able to detect the desktop on the network, but when I click the computer icon, my Public folder or my Users folder, in the Network, i can't open it, giving me an error that says "Windows cannot access \\COMPUTER\folder". Troubleshooting this problem says that the problem can't be detected.

I have made sure that the desktop has allowed folders to be shared to everyone.
I have made sure that folders on my laptop are allowed to be shared to everyone.
I do not use a password for access.
I have tried turning off the Windows Firewall for both computers.

I can't access my Public or Users folder under my own computer in the network. This makes me think that the problem is with my laptop.

Changes that could have possibly done this is that I once tried to connect to the desktop through Remote Desktop Connection, but that failed. I have changed the name of my desktop after doing a factory reset, but i doubt this would affect anything.

I installed Avast AV when Norton expired. In order to activate the internet security stuff, I had to install the upgraded library file, blah, blah, blah. In order to do this, I had to show hidden folders. Having only recently begun my foray into Windows 7 (coming from XP), I was flying a bit blind. I must have hit the wrong thing. After I was able to see hidden folders, install the library file to Avast and continue on with the reboot, the desktop came up wiped clean of my documents/pics, etc and my C:\Users\Susan folder has disappeared and is now called Public. Next, I thought I may have switched my user from Susan to Public, but I have not.

What did I do? I am so confused and feeling like a complete novice at this point....

Thanks,
Susan

A:Windows 7 User folder changed to Public?

Found the solution. I must have checked the box to hide the folder. I found the option to show hidden files/folders (in the control panel? that's dumb) and everything reappeared.... I knew it was something simple and stupid....

We have a office contacts folder that has been shared out from a local pc. A user on a different pc wants to make some category changes on this shared folder. They have This is Outlook 2010. They have Publishing Editor permissions on this folder. They go to categorize > all categories > then on the right it says new but that is greyed out. I switched their permissions to Owner and it did not change their ability to click new. Is it impossible for anyone except the creator of the folder to make the changes?

I think I've tried every option in Windows Help without success. I have pictures in Public Pictures. I log into another account on the same computer. I can see that the folder is shared. I cannot see/open the pictures.

I'm sure the answer is easy, but I'm at my wit's end. Any help appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Public Folder contents cannot be viewed by user

Did you verify that the user has the appropriate permissions for the public folder? By default anyone is supposed to have read access but that could have gotten messed up.

I don't seem to be able to place an external drive folder (containing just about all my video files) into my C drives' Libraries>Videos>Public Videos. Is this possible?

As background, I have a few videos located on my C drive, where the operating system is located. I can place these in the Public Videos folder. I am then able to view files in this folder via a networked WD TV Live media player, and also via a networked Beyonwiz PVR. It seems that it is necessary for files to be in the Public Videos folder before they are accessible on my network.

I have reviewed many of the usual tutorials about adding folders to Libraries, but none of them addresses my particular problem. The only way I can get my external drives' videos folder into the Public Videos library folder is by "dragging" it into the Public Videos folder using Windows Explorer. (I used a small test folder.) I thought I had solved the problem, but then I discovered that after I had done this, a complete copy of this folder must have now been placed somewhere on my C drive, as the videos were now viewable whether or not I had the drive plugged in.(which would seem to defeat the purpose of using an external drive for network storage in the first place). The problem is that I cant keep fitting all the media that I want to view on my C drive.

Is it a limitation of Libraries that folders from external drives cannot be placed into the Public Libraries locations? Or, is there a workaround?

A:Folder from external drive into Public Library

PS. It would even just be useful to know if anyone else can simply place folders from an external drive into their Public Libraries. If I know it is possible, then I guess I need to then start looking at network options and permissions etc.

Hi Guyz,

having a bit of a really annoying problem with the public folders.
In my organisation we have a calender list for everyone in the whole organisation, so that when staff come into the office in the morning they open thier own calender from the public folder and input where they will be at certain times on that day as alot of my staff move around offices and are out at meetings alot etc.

The problem i am having as that some (NOT ALL) of my staff are comming in to office in the morning and when they click on thier own calender, outlook jumps about 6 calenders up and takes them into someone elses.
Ive sat and watch it happening. Just with a single click, definately clicking on thier own calender, but jumps into someone elses.
They then have to re-click thier own calender again in order to access it.

Any ideas as to what may be causing this and how i can stop it?

btw any extra info needed?
all systems running Windows XP SP2, outlook 2003 - rpc/http (exchange over internet)

Cheers

In the default libraries there is a corresponding public folder of each library e.g. Documents/public documents, Pictures/public pictures etc...

But the only library showing the public folder is the music library. Why is this and how can I make it not show without removing the public music folder?


Thanks.

A:Music Library showing public folder as well?

underneath where it says music library (the title of the folder) it says 'includes 2 locations'. click that and then remove the public folder from there.
The public folder will still exist, it just wont be included in the music library.

Is there a way to restrict users from fowarding or replying to e-mails that go to a public folder share? I can set permissions to restrict them from deleting the e-mails but not from replying or forwarding these e-mails. We are using Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2007. We are going to be receiving sensitive information to this folder and just need to assure that individuals with the proper permissions can save and print the attachments.

I appreciate your help
