    At the moment, my method of moving User folder profile (Documents, Pics, Downloads, Desktop etc) on D drive after fresh install was pretty brute. I would simply copy the content to D drive, and Move Location in the Location properties. It works.

    But after recently reading up on Junction links, is there a more proper way to just point User profile to D drive, to make fresh installs and backups easier?
