The Vista "My Documents" folder is a "special" folder rather than a normal folder. Here's an article describing how to move them via the "Location" tab on the folder properties: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_documents.htm.

The My Picture folder would have it's own location, so you don't have to relocate the My Documents to relocate the My Pictrues. –  Scott McClenning Jan 16 '10 at 21:31

There's also an article from Paul Thurrott http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/winvista_virtualfolders.asp which talks about these folders.

FYI the description of DFS in the article is incorrect. DFS is a load balancing technology to make one folder shared across many servers. Not a way to have many folders across servers act as one contiguous space, as the article says. –  Scott McClenning Jan 16 '10 at 21:38
