    Hi, I'm trying to move c:\users\...\pictures to other place. I created
    directory d:\pictures, than I created junction from c:\users\...
    \pictures to d:\pictures. It works fine until I logout. When I login
    again shortcut "Pictures" in "Favorite Links" in file open dialog
    don't work, and it's icon is blank. This works fine with windows xp.

    If I create directory d:\testdir, than junction from d:\testjunc to d:
    \testdir, than shortcut to d:\testjunc, it's not working. But if I
    create directory d:\testjunc, than shortcut to it, than remove this
    directory and create junction from d:\testjunc to d:\testdir, shortcut
    works fine.

    Good to that point.

    Right-click the original Pictures, then...

    Properties - Location - Move
