I apologize, I'm a moron for not reading the documentation on this
first.  I have made the change but it doesn't seem to have helped, I
still get an error:

Windows cannot copy file \\filecabinet\profiles\dreed\Favorites\Media\
to location c:\Documents and Settings\dreed\Favorites\Media\.  Contact

Any clues now?
