Windows 7: How to move location of Public folders to another harddrive

How to move location of Public folders to another harddrive

I have a solid state drive with limited capacity so I would like Public folders to be on another hard drive. I'm able to change the location of the regular My Documents, My Pictures, etc. to the other drive but not the Public folders. Its curious because when I open up the properties for these Public folders it shows the existing location and there is a note saying you can change the location ..., but there is not a move button nor can you change what is listed in the location text box. So how do you change the location?

You can just move the folder(s) itself. But there is really nothing to be gained. It is just a few peanut bytes.

If you delete the hiberfile and reduce the pagefile to 1GB, you can gain a LOT more.
