Moving "MyVideos" To Another Drive?

Posted: 01-21-2009, 10:41 PM
Seemed easy: right click drag/drop, specify "Move", and Windows
moves it and it's contents.

The joker is that it comes up with the Read-only attribute set.

Properties | General | Attributes | Read-only allows the checkbox
tb cleared, but upon re-opening the props dialog it's back to
being checked.

Funny thing is that I can drag drop a file to the folder and it
gets copied in there ok... but that Read-Only box is still
checked and a program I'm using to record television shows
refuses to accept MyVideos as a storage directory because "You
have no write privileges to the specified folder".

Anybody know how to clear that checkbox?

Some registry entry maybe?

Maybe I should add that I've Googled how to move MyDocuments.

But this is a little extra twist: I want to leave MyDocuments
where it is and move the subfolder "MyVideos" to the other
device, leaving the rest of MyDocuments where it is.

instead of moving the windows created folder and creating problems, why not
just change the default folder where the program saves the video to the drive
you want, ie create your own folder of Saved videos on the drive where you
want them.

That would have been my first choice.

But the program in question (Silicon Dust's TV viewer app - whose name
escapes me right now as I'm supposedly at work...) does not seem to
allow the user to specify a path.

Instead, it presents a list of subdirectories under MyDocuments.

Ultimately, I figure there's got to be a path somethere... but I spent
some time searching the registry and failed to find it.
