Thanks DL - I have two physical drives and would like to maintain a kind of
separation between software and user-created data. I am not concerned with
"Application Data", "Local Settings" ... etc, only with "Fred's Documents",
"Mary's Documents" etc etc.
I appreciate your response,

A simple method would be to loggon to the win account, then rt click My
Documents and select the move option.
If you move each users Documents folder to D then all users would have access
to each others, is that what you want? and since you appear to be donating it
to a single user is it neccessary for all the profiles?
On the assumtion you are doing this for backup purposes there are many
utilities that will copy all docs to another location.
And if drive D is another partition on the same disk, it makes no difference
as if the disk fails so do all partitions
So what is the purpose for this that you have in mind?

to drive D:.
I believe I need to alter the profiles for the Default User, and of course
any existing a/cs.
I do not have the faintest idea how this may be done - could someone please
