Moving C:\Users in an D partition

HI

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I want to move the c:\Users\<User-account-name> directories of my users and of the administrator respectively in the d:\Users\<User-account-name> directories of a D partition located in the same hard disk. Also, I want to move even the public directory in the D partition. So how do I do this?

THANKS

BYE

Several here have had success with it, but can mess things up if done wrong, so make sure you have good backups before messing around. Do at your own risk.
