When I setup the system, I only have OS and program files on C Drive . The actual data like .PST , photos ,etc are in a different disk partition D . I suppose I dont have to do anything with D drive.

Don't forget to move the normally hidden AppData folder for your User Profile.

It looks like the Desktop Wall paper is finally working as expected after creation of a new Profile and migrating my documents over.
