Windows 7: New laptop, partition size confusion! Advice please!

Aha, this seems quite simple. Am I right in thinking...

I go into my User folder and select "Properties" on each folder I wish to move to the D drive (ie. My Documents) and then simple "Move" to the D drive and copy contents from there. And then, when I click on My Docs from the Library sidebar, it'll still come up but from the D drive rather the C?

So, I'm not really moving the Libraries per se, but rather the contents. Haven't got around to configuring D as the main download folder yet though...

Windows says C:/ is the boot partition, but partition Wizard says D:/ is. D: is formatted, but "system volume" info remains. How can I get rid of that? :confused:
