I am setting up my new build ... which has SSD and HD ... I want to move my library files (my docs ... my music ... etc) to a partition on hd ... I follow the instructions ... which lets me select the drive letter I want ... and I then make it the default drive ... fine ... but I don't understand what is happening ... I have one user just now ... me ... the libraries started out at c:\users\john ... when I pick another drive ... I can only set it up as f:\ ... no reference to users ... so first ... will the data stored on f ... be only available to john ... that is the part I don't understand ... second ... each of my 3 hd partitions show libraries ... when I store something on partition g under my directories ... will it go to f now ... would appreciate someone explaining how this actually works ... before I start to move my files onto the hd ... thanks ... John

Create the directory structure that you require on f: before the move. You can use whatever you like, but if you want to stick with \users\john then that's fine.

Ok ... I set up a folder on F partition ... Documents (F) ... with a few subfolders ... then attached Documents (F) to library documents ... then I logged in as another user ... and I can see all the files on F partition ... so no user security of files ... still missing a clear understanding of this ...

You may have to change the security of the folder manually.
