Move the Microsoft User Data folder (revisited)
Authored by: Hart on Feb 28, '06 09:15:55AM

Another vote to keep all applicaton-created folders out of Documents. No application (including Entourage and Mail) should keep user data in any hidden place. And Apple has set up specific places for applications to put folders they create. Any user who backs up only Documents is in big trouble anyway.

This hint also appears to work for Sound Studio's presets folder, but not for AppleWorks User Data.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the AppleWorks User Data folder…

…and it seems to be just another example of how embarrassed Apple should be about AW in general! Why do they not follow their own guidelines for AW?? Incredible really.

If anyone has a clue as to a way to move *that* folder out of documents, I'd be very happy. I'd love to just delete everything AW-related altogether, but I still have to support people that are using it, so I'm stuck with it myself.

<sigh>
