Moving users folder to a data partition in W7

W7, 64 bit. I have my OS etc on a 100 gig partition (c:/) and data (My Documents etc and Outlook data) on a data partition (F:/)- balance of the total of 500 gig. I have pointed my libraries to the correct location(s) in F;/My Documents. However I have not yet worked out how to move the C:Users folder or maybe its sub folders to the data partition. I would like to do this so that the things that go there by default end up in the data partition. Any suggestions?

Thanks, I will follow up the first link; the second went to "Lifehacker" but I did not see a ref to this issue. I wonder what happens if you simply drag and drop the users folder into another drive?

I did it this way as I have an SSD drive so needed to move My music-My Documents etc to another drive and any future additions automatically went to the new location.click here

Thanks, I will go through that link too. I have it working in that in the libraries I "Tell" each one to go to the relevant folder of My Documents that I have created in My F Drive. I want to make it a rule for all users.
