How to redirect shared folders in Windows XP?

Introduction

The Shared Documents link shown in the My Computer window, is just a pointer to another folder. Its location, by default is set as %ALLUSERSPROFILE%Documents. If you want to redirect the Shared folders to a different drive or a network path, follow the steps in this article.

Note:  The %allusersprofile% placeholder represents the path to the All Users profile folder, which is usually C:Documents and SettingsAll Users.



Relocating the Shared Documents folder

Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe

Navigate to the following branch:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer User Shell Folders

In the right-pane, look for the entry named Common Documents and double-click it. To relocate the shared documents folder, type the new path (say D:SharedDocs) in the text box provided. The default Value data is %ALLUSERSPROFILE%Documents

Relocating the sub-folders of Shared Documents

To relocate the Shared Music, Shared Pictures and Shared Video folders along with Shared Documents, navigate to teh following registry branch:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer User Shell Folders

In the right pane, do the following:

  • Create a REG_SZ value named CommonMusic and set the path
  • Create a REG_SZ value named CommonPictures and set the path
  • Create a REG_SZ value named CommonVideo and set the path

Logoff and login back. The shared folders are now redirected successfully.
