Windows 7: Redirect User Profile to use folders on D:\ ?

Redirect User Profile to use folders on D:\ ?

I tried moving the location of the User Profile to D, and made a mess.
Then I tried moving it to D at installation. Better. But now I've found that'll be difficult for system images.

How can I make C:\User\[name]\[my own folders] point to D:\[name]\[my own folders]?
i.e., C:\User\MiraNova\Commissions > D:\MiraNova\Commissions

Go to C/Users, your user name/ Take each of your user fies )my documents, my music ect.) Right click on them, select the location tab, click the move button and select where to move them to. Before you begin, you will want to make a file like users, inside that file make another file your user name. What to do is make a destination file the same as the origon file. When you move the folders, click apply. a screen will ask if you want to move the files. Be sure to answer yes.

Hello mate.


The creator of this tutorial said that creating images doesn't affect this as they can be re-directed when an image is used; post a question in the thread so he can answer you as I can't remember the method.
