Windows 7: Automatically move permissions to a different partition

Automatically move permissions to a different partition

In Windows 7 Home Premium, I've created a few standard users. I have a "data" drive I want to put all documents, desktop... on. I created a Users folder on D:\, then User1 folder. On C:\Users\User1\ I select My Documents, Properties, Location, Move, select My Documents on D: drive, click Apply. Files move just fine. If I do this for a few standard users, I find they can each read each other's files, not what I want.

Is there any easy way to "move" these folders to another drive and retain the same permissions they had before the move? I've played with security and revoked permissions and really screwed a user up royally. I would like an easy list of commands, if that is possible.

Thanks.
