I just purchased a new computer and the hard drive came already partitioned into a C and a D drive.

I need to know how I can relocate the My Documents folder from the C drive to the D drive.

Also, I need to know how to change the default location for music that I rip from CD's onto my hard drive. I belive that by default Windows Media Player puts music onto the C drive and I want to put it onto the D drive.

If anyone can help me they have my thanks.

If you move 'My Docs' to the D drive by the above method (right click my docs on the desktop, properties, move) then subfolders including your 'my music' folder goes with it. WMP will still save music to this folder, but it will be on D drive. All references to My Docs and subfolders are changed with the move.
Everything about my docs and their subfolders works and appears the same when moved this way (even their seperate listing in explorer), but they live on D drive.
I've used this setup for a couple of years now.

What the others said. :D

As for WMP, in addition you can also instruct it to put the files wherever you want by going into Tools/Options and set up your destination folder there.
:cool:
