Saying "My" when the correct word is "Your" is the way adults talk to two-year-olds. It doesn't get much more condescending than that.

Plus, there may be valid reasons for having several places for different kinds of documents, and it doesn't get in the way of backups at all.

I also hate the way Windows assumes every MP3 file is music - I work as a transcriptionist and my MP3s are mostly spoken word.
