Moving C:\Users in an D partition


I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I want to move the c:\Users\<User-account-name> directories of my users and of the administrator respectively in the d:\Users\<User-account-name> directories of a D partition located in the same hard disk. Also, I want to move even the public directory in the D partition. So how do I do this?

Several here have had success with it, but can mess things up if done wrong, so make sure you have good backups before messing around. Do at your own risk.
