Move My Documents Folder

XP Home / Pro

Purpose improve Performance

Right click on the My Documents folder > choose Properties > Click on the Move... button > Expand My Computer and choose the drive you want to move it to > click the Make New Folder button and name it anything you like > click Apply > a screen will pop-up, click yes.

Which partition or drive isn't important but programs that access the My Documents folder may launch faster if you put it on a separate drive and as close to the beginning of that drive as you can.
