    Default Move Public Folder- 'Move' option not listed


    I'm trying to move the Public folder to a different volume. Help is
    clear, and I was able to move the user folder with no issues. However,
    the Public folder (under Locations) doesn't give me the 'move' option.
    It lists the current location, but I can't edit it or change it.
    Workaround?

    Default Move button problem still remains

    Followed suggestions in this forum and others, including microsoft support --nothing works to be able to get move button on location tab of public folders.

    In summary, I have disabled UAC -- no help; tried running explorer.exe as elevated process -- no help; looked in my registry for a particular policy that might affect, but no policies exist in that location.

    Any further ideas?

    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    Are you trying to move the "Public" folder itself, or one of its subfolders
    (Public Videos, Public Pictures etc)?
