Thanks for this query - I had not realised (or forgotten!) that you
could change the location of this directory (and also $BaseDirectory).
To set this variable (or change its value) go into control panel and
activate the "System" icon. Select "Advanced" and then "Environment
Variables" (who said GUI interfaces to this stuff was easy :) ). You can
add a per-user variable or a system wide variable. Remember to close
down and restart Mathematica before the changes will come into effect.
