To move the My Documents folder from C: to D:, right-click on the My Documents icon in the start menu, then click on the Properties menu item. On my own PC, the target folder location was originally C:\Documents a n d S e t t i n g s \n 2 n d \M y Documents, where n2nd is my account name. Just change the C: to D: and click OK. You will be asked if you want to move the files with the folder, and the answer, of course, is yes. If you have more than one account on your PC, you must move the My Documents folder for each one.

Hi, another way to be sure you don't lose them - if you have cdrw, save the My Pictures folder and contents to CD.
