Location of Data in W7

  john bunyan 23:10 09 Feb 2011

My W7 PC's are partitioned 100 gig for OS, Programme files and balance of 500 gig in F:Partition. I have put all "My Documents" and e Mail Outlook etc on to the F Partition on the desktop that has only one user. My laptop has several users and I would like to store all data on the F: partition. Can I simply move (drag and drop) the users folder from C: to F: ? My Libraries point to data in the F partition.
I like to use Synch Toy to make daily echo /mirror copies of my data to an external drive - quicker than an image; and an ATI image of the C: drive after a scan for malware etc

I may do this too at some point, so it piqued my interest.

All I can offer you is what Google searches I tried for.

But some good looking ideas.

One involving 'hard links' another with minor registry hack(s)

I didn't read further than about the first 6 or 8 links in each search.
2nd search is Advanced (results in last year)
