i'm sure there is some way to change the path of these folders, someone will probably point it out soon! if i couldn't find a way i would try the following (using ~/Pictures as example).


1. Copy ~/Pictures to /Volumes/newdisk/Pictures

2. Delete ~/Pictures

3. Create a symbolic link in home folder pointing to /Volumes/newdisk/Pictures

ln -s /Volumes/newdisk/Pictures /Users/yourname


you already know but do drop your stuff into a burn folder and backup before messing with it!
