Move My Documents to D drive in xp

I know there are various ways of moving the My Documents folder to different locations and drives. I have looked through the discussion archive but overall it seems to pose more questions than it answers!

What is considered to be the safest?

Someone will probably correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think that you can move 'MY DOCUMENTS'. Why not go to where you wanted to put it and create a new folder and call it whatever you want, eg 'MY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS', then you can save whatever you want there.

Do you really need to? I did this and it caused many problems, even after moving it back to the C drive. To try and preserve space on my C drive I've now created a file called 'My Stuff' on the D drive and transferred the contents of My Documents to this file, leaving the My Documents folder empty.

Right click on 'my documents' go into properties
select 'move' and browse to where you want to save to. Click ok.

Using the XP Powertoys[Tweakui for XP] you can easily move this [and other special folders] painlessly.
