    I keep all of my pictures on the D drive (where the space is). MC only seems
    to look for pictures in the "My Pictures or Shared Pictures" folders on the C
    drive. I do not have anymore room on the C drive to store them there. Is it
    possible to get MC to locate any pictures on a drive other than C, and how?
    Oh yeah, I have version 2002. Thank you.

    You can create a shortcut in your "My Pictures" folder
    that links to the folder on your D: drive, where your
    pictures are stored.

  4. Note that you can also move your entire "My Documents" folder to your D
    drive if that's where you'd prefer to keep your data. Moving "My
    Documents" will also move subfolders like My Music, My Videos, My
    Pictures. Right click on "My Documents" and select properties. You
    should find a button there to move the entire thing.
