My userís account, in which partition?
I have Windows 7. My HD has two partitions, C: and D:, the latter intended for all data, leaving the whole of C: for the system, Windows and the applications. In the directory tree, the Windows Explorer shows my user’s account (say “Name”) both under C:/Users and under D:/Users. Now, I want all my data files to go, by default, to folders (temporary or others) under D:/User/Name. Instead, certain savings, for instance when I save files attached to e-mail messages, go to temporary folders under C:/User/Name. How can I direct everything to D:/, by default? Also, I tried to trim off all folders from under C:/User/Name, but then some applications failed to perform right; it’s as if certain folders must stay under C:/User/Name, like ‘Desktop’ or ‘Favorites’ (if ‘Favorites’ is under D:/User/Name but not under C:/User/Name, then the Favorites wont display in my browser). Must that be so? Thank you for any help. ACA
