Can you map your Desktop to another drive?

A friend of mine is wondering if he could map his desktop items to a secondary drive. The reason is that he wants to get a SSD for his operating system drive when he builds his new desktop, but since he does a lot of video editing and other fairly large-file things, he typically keeps them on the desktop until they are completed, and he was wondering if you could re-map the desktop to a secondary drive so he doesnt run out of room quickly.

Is this possible? I have never heard of it, nor would I need to do it, but I thought I would give it a whirl in here and see if anyone HAS done it, or if you even CAN do it.

My thought is no, since the Desktop is tied directly to the operating system and the user account, but I wanted to be sure..

Cheers
