Having multiple working folders in Data Shortcuts...!?!?

Hey Everyone,


I am running Civil3D 2011 on Windows 64 machine and am wondering how I go about setting up multiple working folders when using data shortcuts.  I have two different projects I am working on, for which I set up surface data shortcuts, but the 2nd one I set up over-wrote the 1st folder and so now that surface is not properly shortcutted into that project.  Any ideas on how to set this up, for I am new to the whole shortcutting game?


Thanks in advance
