D: disk within users folder. Help?

Hi, I moved my users folder to my secondary drive, but now the disk shows within the users folder. I know it doesn't affect performance-wise, ut I'd like to avoid possible directory issues.
Thanks!

Exactly how was the Users folder moved? Reason for asking: the answer will probably help others who have been there/done that successfully to give you their answer as to the disk-within-folder situation. I want to learn more about this.

Right-click -> Location -> move to
This was done with all user folders. However, the issue appeared after I moved the Desktop Folder to D:

I still don't understand what you did.

You didn't move the Users folder to D:
As you can see it is still on C:\Users (ou C:\Usuarios)
What you did was to change the link from your library from C: to some place in D:
As you can see, my folder tree shows D:\users

So if I move (cut/paste) the C:/user folder into D: , it'll solve the driver location issue?

No, it isn't so simple. As \Users is part of the OS, it can't be moved that way. You must use Sysprep.
This tutorial also work in win 7 User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

Thank you, I actually ended up just doing a clean Windows install. It's taking forever with all the updates, drivers and programs, but I hope it gets all neat this time.

Can't Access "Default User" folder in Users Folder
No matter what I do, and how much I edit the security settings on that folder (not that it lets me even do that) I can't access this folder for some reason? What's the deal? Thanks. This is on Windows 7. I have two admin accounts. I can't access it from either account.
