Is there a way to move the Win 7 Documents folder to a different drive letter?

I have some things in Documents in the C drive where the OS is in, but the majority of my files are in D:/My Documents because it has much more space to put stuff in. I'd want to move the Documents folder that Windows recognizes to D:/ so that all its shortcuts point to there, including the sidebar in the Explorer and from the Start Menu.

I'm thinking you could probably do this via a symbolic link:

I do this with Minecraft to run it on a RAM disk and it works quite nicely.


Here's a more legitimate way of doing it that's officially supported by the OS:

Apologies if my assumption that you're running 7 is incorrect.

Yep, that's the way to do it.
