Hi... my name is kungfupanda from indonesia...

i am going to do a clean install of windows 7...

i'd like to ask,

1) how to move the user folders from C to D?

what folders can i move? is it only pics/vids/docs/downloads only.

or can i move the desktop folder too?

*without removing the e
ntire user profile to D*

is it safe to move the my docs/my vids/my pics to partition D from the default C (win 7 partition)?

2) I read somewhere that there is a way to move the entire user profile to partition D when you do a clean windows 7 install?

may i ask which one is safer...?

move the entire user profile to D on a clean install?
or move the my docs/my vids/my pics only...?

so sorry and many thank you's....

is D a separate hard drive...
if so...
go here to move the My Documents folder to another drive
if its a small partition on the only hard drive its probably a recovery partition...
