    System: Stand-alone Vista
    Drive 0: 4 Partitions (C=MBR, D=Data, R=ASR, S=Software)
    Drive 1: 4 (Do Not Use) Partitions that are Sync'd with each Drive 0 Partition

    Concern: How to Redirect the default location for Documents within a Vista
    Stand-alone system.

    The system is implemented as a stand-alone within an environment that has
    the C:\ assigned as the MBR. ASR images resides within R:\. Software
    resides within S:\ and all Data reside on D:\.

    The intention is to Redirect the Documents Folder from within C:\Users, and
    the Sub-Folders to reside within D:\. Therefore allowing an ASR Recovery...
    with no concern for the users documentation within the C:\Users directory.

    At this time, after implementing a Folder Redirection to the D:\
    destination, the original C:\Users Documents directory is deleted. It is at
    the time of deletion, the system begins to have a variety of errors and
    notifications of the inability to locate a source.

    Further research leads to the understanding that the C:\Users Directory is
    the default and the intended D:\ destination is a Virtual Folder and not
    actually redirecting the default source. Therefore I welcome your comments
    and/or suggestions to gain an additional understanding.

    Should you prefer to have additional information, please respond to inquire.

    An up front "Thank You" for your time and reply, ... TJ
