    Team,
    I have used Yamicsoft's Windows 7 Manager ever since I started using Windows 7. It allows me to move the data directories (such as Documents, Music, Pictures, Favorites etc.) to D: drive to allow for backup and restore procedures without data loss.

    Everything has worked fine right up until V1.2.0 was released a couple of days ago. The functionality has changed a lot not allowing the moving of directories as before.

    Without going into a lot of detail here I just wanted to warn my valuable team members (that's you BTW) of this bug.

    I have already emailed Yamicsoft with my findings.

    This almost borked my fresh install! Be warned!

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I'm glad I didn't update it yet.
    I am still using v1.1.9

    I'm using v1.1.4 and it works fine so I'll not update because of your suggestions:)
