Windows 7: How to move the location of the 'My Documents' folder

13 Dec 2017   #11

Windows 7 HP 64

I have a small (128G) SSD (for windows and programs and Lubuntu) and a HDD for data.
I have the speed of an SSD and the size of a HDD at a low price.
I have moved all C:/users to D:/Users so everything related to the user (configuration, data, temporary folder etc) is on the HDD.
I have used the Kari tutorial to do it.
