    Really glad it worked out for you @sonicwind it don't always happen with such little effort and agony. Just me being me, I hated "My Computer" and "My Documents" when they came along. Figured out leave them in tact and create my folders in "My Documents". Seems to be less trouble for me.

    Just a note to the OP, if you move your "Documents" folder and you have been using the M.R. XML feature, it won't find them after you move your documents folder. I posted a question on their forum as to how to change M.R. to look in the right place. As of now, no answer yet, but if I am provided with a solution, I will post it in the Backup subforum on Tenforums.
