I have just moved to Win 7 64bit from XP and I think I like it! My question is this, I have a 120Gb SSD with the OS installed and where I am going to load my applications, I also have a 1 Tb HDD where I intend to keep all my data documents, pictures music etc. What is the best way to setup the HDD directories so that they appear in the library when I open my computer?

You can right click on a library, select 'Properties' and 'include a folder', and browse to the folder that you want to add to that library so you can set up your folders as you want them on your data disk and then add them to the library that you want to access them from. You can also add libraries by right click on 'Libraries' and selecting 'New' to create a new library if none of the others suit your needs.

I have it sorted now thanks, it is just a bit different from XP but I think an improvement being able to access all your documents and data spread across several storage mediums all in one place.
