Move the Microsoft User Data folder (revisited)
Authored by: mwncimelyn on Feb 28, '06 07:57:07AM

Thank you so much for this hint. This has long been an annoyance of mine as I have found ways of moving most of the applications folders that hi-jack my Documents folder, but not Microsoft's.

It does not work for me ;-(
As soon as I open Word, a new Microsoft User Data folder is created in Documents folder. Am I missing something?

BTW, I moved my original MS User Data folder in ~/Library/Application Support before launching Word.

It's probably because the hint said to move it to the Preferences folder, not the Application Support folder. The latter folder was only mentioned as that's where this stuff probably should go.
