Windows 7: Windows 7 Data management

Windows 7 Data management

Hi how you handle that with the Data management.

I mean if i don't use partition all data (Programs, user data, Images, video, Music, ...) on one partition.
I don't realy like that especial for backing up Data and System at deferent times
and also for accessing data from a second operating system on same PC.

So I use a second partition for User-Data (Private data, schools data, ...)
and a third partition mainly for Media Data Pictures, Music and Videos
Most of Music and Video is on an External HD.

But in the folder "C:\users\NAME" there are many folders like ".APP-NAME"
and also Desktop, Download, My Pictures, ....
I don't really miss them on my "Data" partition as my Musik is not in "My Music"
my videos is not in "My Videos".
But much applications "use" this Folders for default saving point or loading point, ...

How can I organize this in a better way?

You can use windows 7 Libraries to add folders into the "my Music" folder and have one set as the default location.

You can also change the location of the default folders.

Hmm yes the concept Of Libraries is ok.
But the Data is still on the Systempartion in C:\Users\NAME.
That can only be a part of the solution.
