Sometimes it would be helpful to just edit the path within the Actions steps, rather than remove step of the action and re-record it. So much easier we could re-use the action on another folders.

You can edit your actions using a couple of scripts...
1 Save your action to an atn file.
2 Use Xbytor's ActionFileToXML.jsx to convert the atn file to xml
3 Edit the paths in the xml to the new paths you would like
4 Use ActionFileFromXML.jsx to convert the edited xml back into an atn file
5. Load the atn in Photoshop

These scripts are part of Xbytor's XTOOLS
XTOOLS can be downloaded here...
