Greetings,

I just partitioned my new hard drive to five separate partitions: 1) OS and Program 2) documents, 3) photos, 4)MP3s and 5)movies. I was going to start moving documents into the second partition but have a question about what would be the best way to do this. Should I move the entire Documents and settings folder to the #2 partition? Or is it better to manually move the my documents files for each user to the #2 partition? I was planning on reassigning the appropriate softwares to store their files in partitions 3,4 and 5.

Thanks!
Marc

Just use Windows Explorer and drag and drop or cut and paste.

I HOPE you've backed all of this up..

You can right click on My Documents . . Select Properties . . click on the Move button and navigate to where you want the files to be . . tell it to move the files and ok/apply out. After that, all applications which use the My Documents by default will store files in that location.
