Can not move documents to new drive .

Wd 1 tb drive (c). used disk management tools to create new 450gig drive (j) for storage.
(My Computer )now shows 2 drives both (c)450gig and (j)450gig.
(Windows explorer) shows new volume (j).

???? Right click does not show move only copy.Only my original (c) drive and my usb harddrive in popup.

I want to move my documents folder to (j ) volume for security ,but i can only copy.

My desktop shows shortcuts created for (my docs) (my Music ) (my photos) not the actual documents folder.

Would appreciate some assistance.
