ok this isnt a problem just a question, I would like to move the contents and the file path of the "My Music" folder to a seperate hard drive so that stuff will start going to that hard drive ( I just bought a new 300g to release the pressure mounting on the old one) and was wondering if this was possable and/or plauseable.

You can either "cut and paste" the folder to the other drive or make a new folder on the drive. But then you have to go back and change the programs that save to it. Make sure they have the new address ie e:\ music.
Hope that makes sense... :thumbsup:

You can also move the My Documents folder to the new drive - and the My Music folder will go along with it. That'll preserve the "save to" path for it if any programs save to it regularly.
