Documents vs My Documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to get SyncToy 2.1 to recognize a renamed "My Documents" folder.  I have renamed the folder to "Documents" (to match the other folders in Documents, such as Pictures, Music, and Video).  

    One would think M$ would get around to reconciling all of the "My" names back to something sensible.  Unfortunately, for some M$ applications (particularly SyncToy) it seems that Documents must be "My Documents" while Pictures, Music, and Video can be just Pictures, Music, and Video.  There *should* be a way to sync any folders regardless of naming/renaming, but of course that does not mean that there *is* a way to do so.  If not, I will just go back to the (rather stupid and divergent) "My Documents" folder name (and suffer the tremendous and debilitating psychic consequences).  Nonetheless, I am curious if this bug impacts other folder naming/renaming or if it is restricted to the "My Documents" wonkiness.
