Alan, can you clarify your problem a little ? You say shortcuts to games, but aren't these either on you desktop as icons or in 'Start\All programs' ?

Is the folder 'Library\Games\Alan C\User' just a copy of the folder C:\Users\Alan C' or not ?
What does the figure of 21 Gb refer to ? If that's shortcuts, that's an awful lot of shortcuts or links !

I have a number of game files held in 'My Docs' but they are things like default flights and route planning in flight simulator, and the biggest of these is 178 kb. I'd need to plan an awful lot of flights to get anywhere near 1 Gb, never mind 21.

Hi chris, thanks for your response, Yes, the shortcuts to the games are the only titles i wish to put under my games folder in my library section which there is 8 off. That is easily done as i have them waiting on my desktop(as you described). But my problem is that in that games folder which i have created in the library section i have the following programs,
Posted Image This is a total of 21GB i think this is my backup data (im not sure)I say that because today i have a pc issue of the following: WINDOWS CANNOT FIND THE DISK OR NETWORK LOCATION WHERE YOUR BACKUPS ARE BEING SAVED" i think all these files under alan in the games folder are backups.so i need to move this ALAN FILE to its origional place but i dont know how without deleting or losing it.
