Why not just transfer files to the new drive, to free up C:?
You can also move your My Documents folder, and any other users My Documents folder, to the new drive, as well.
Click Start, right-click My Documents, and select Properties.
Click the Target tab, if it's not already selected.
Click the Move button, click where you want to move My Documents to, to highlight it, then click OK.
This will start the move, and leave "pointers" behind, so the Operating System will know where the files are.
After the move, when you click Start / My Documents, it will open the file from the location, where you moved it to.
You might want to consider making a folder, to move My Documents into.
One with your username on it.
If you just move it to a partition/drive, My Documents will occupy the whole partition/drive.
By creating it's own folder, My Documents will only occupy, that folder.
The folder with your name on it will be considered the My Documents folder, for you.
When you click My Documents, that's the folder that will open.
Say you're moving My Documents from C:, to G:
In G:, create a folder with your name.
For other user accounts, just go to their accounts, and move them the same way.
This works for XP.
I'm not sure about Windows 7.
Maybe other members using 7 could verify if this procedure works, or not.
