    why not create a second user, copy the contents of the main folders and then change the location of the profile to the other hard drive?

    Thanks for the suggestion xaccell. Your suggestion offers an alternate approach.

    If you do that, your documents and texts if in the past was saved to user/xyz/My Documents will not be saved where you normally expect to find your stuff, such will now be saved to user/abc/My Documents. Now, if your software is "told" to Save and Save As to your D partition's general folders for everybody, all users, no hassles at all.

    If he relocates the folders, Windows will take care of it. They will be saved in "desktop", or "Documents", regardless the physical location. That is the whole point behind folder relocation o redirection!

    xacell, I forgot to post this quote when I made my earlier post:
    "...why not create a second user, copy the contents of the main folders and then change the location of the profile to the other hard drive?"
    I guess I was rabbit-trailed by the phrase: create a second user
