Windows 7: Make My Documents button take me to a different place

Make My Documents button take me to a different place

I've re-installed W7 and partitioned my hard drive so that all my data is on a different logical drive to the OS. I want the icon My Documents that appears when I try to open a document to take me to the My Documents on my D drive rather than the default My Documents provided by Windows on the C drive. How can I do this?

Does it make sense for a separate documents partition?
I am setting up my new computer this weekend with Windows 7. In my old machine I had a small drive for the OS and Programs and placed all my files on a separate drive. I could then very quickly make backup images of the OS drive using Acronis. For my new install I have a 1 Tb drive and I am...
