    Running Mac OS 10.6.1

    I changed the account preferences (in the System Preferences) so that the username is pointed to Data/users/username

    The Finder icon in the dock still opens to to Programs/users/username, even after rebooting. All other apps appear to be using Data/users/username for saving files and other stuff.

    How do I change the Finder on the Dock to open to Data/users/username?

    Ahh.....as the prefs showed Username (unknowingly linked to the old drive) already I didn't think to choose Other....

    Thanks.
