I also do the same thing. In a drive other than c, I created a few folders naned pictures, documents, clips, musics, etc... and back my user data up categorically.
On this option you only have copies of your files.
So it has 2 main drawbacks:
1. You have duplicates of your foldes, which mean 2 time more wasted space
2. You had to manually copy folders (synchronise them manually). Every now and then.
In the option I gave you.
It moves it's location. So it will delete old folder (so you have only one copy, means no wasted space)
And it will redirect all future access to that folder. Meaning it will automatically synchronise itself. (freeing you from worry and effort to keep copying your user folder every 1-2 days)
