Moving files and changing settings

I would like to move all user files and settings (ie: Documents; Music, Pictures) to the D drive so that all data is stored automatically there. Could you tell me the best way to do that so that all user settings and files get transferred correctly?

Re: Moving files and changing settings

Windows XP has a tool called the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" — affectionately abbreviated F.A.S.T. for such tasks, but as with most software in life, it has some gliches you should know about before using it or trying out. So you may want to read a little bit about FAST first...


--> Using the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard

...and so on, just do some internet search about it to find other sources and similar tools.

Re: Moving files and changing settings

Just  change the location of  "My documents" folder to D(search for this option in the "My documents" folder propertys).
Before doing that I suggest to create folder named "My docs" or so to move data there.
