What email program do you use?
The program should be able to save to a certain folder, or remember and save
to the last folder you selected.

I can and do save to folders of my choice and then deleter th
emails/pics, etc. from Windows Mail but these file names and message
keep showing up in the Document folder. The Doc folder even fills u
with files I haven't worked on or viewed for some time. It just seems t
reach out and grab stuff. I have to keep going to the Doc folder an
manually deleting things to keep it empty. Thank you for responding

Exactly as described above, you "Choose your own folders"

Software is generally not smart enough to figure out what you want
unless you tell it how and what to do, so it falls back on a logical
default.

Rather then fighting, you might find it more productive to redirect My
Documents to where you store your data, thereby giving software a hint
as to where to start.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I am still not clearly stating th
problem. I have a variety of folders in which I save documents
spreadsheets, pictures and a variety of other things. My default fo
Word and Excel is properly set up in where to send files, etc. Othe
items are saved to an external USB hard drive into those folders

When I go to the start menu button and then to "documents" I find al
kinds of things have deposited there. Some pictures, some emails that
deleted and did not save, Exel spreadsheets, etc, etc. Unwanted stuf
that has already been directed to appropriate folders.

Even after I laboriously delete all the stuff in that documents folde
the damned thing seems to reach out grab more stuff and park it there
Even things I haven't worked with, pulled up or viewed in a long time
And, the stuff it grabs is a duplicate file name of things in thei
proper folders elsewhere. Why is it selectively grabbing some file
names but not others? Why does it do this at all

I guess this is some kind of unique problem with my system but thank
again for taking the trouble of replying

I had hoped that someone else had suffered the same problem and found
solution on how to shut the damnend thing down

If you are getting Office docs within Documents folder, when previously you
had set default the folder locations within the office component, then
something else is putting them there

As to win Mail, which I assume is the mail app you are using, there is no
obvoius reason as to why msgs are apearing there, I'm not sure where Mail
stores attachments you have opened, I would have assumed it would be similar
to Outlook where they are stored in a temp file

You appear to have something perculiar going on with your sys

I've not heard of this problem in the past 2 years of reading these Vista
newsgroups.
Are you using Vista?

In Windows 7 beta, the Start - Documents opens the Documents Library, which
can show the contents of multiple folders.

Yes, Vista, Office and Winmail. I will continue to thrash around and se
if there is some option or preference I have failed to locate. I a
mostly baffeled why it picks up file names I haven't used since the las
time i deleted everything in the Start Document window

I guess everyone needs a nagging problem

Encrypt and hide your *folders*, *files*, pictures, *documents* in

host any torrent *files* or links of *Folder* Vault fro
*depositfiles*.com, *...* You
*don't* have to create separate user accounts or use the NTFS *file
