My HDD is partitioned into two parts. Currently, the folders in Library (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos) is on C drive. How can I move those to D drive? Is it just a simple matter of copy and paste? Current save locations point to C drive Documents folder. Will those automatically change when the folder is on D drive?

Right click on the library you want to change (i.e. Documents, music, pictures) in your explorer window and select properties.
This will bring up a window that allows you to add/remove library locations.
From here you can re-map to the locations you want.

You don't need to move anything, just create some folders on your D: drive and include them in the appropriate libraries. You can then change the default save location to your D: drive folder and set it to show first in the library list.

Remove both of the current locations by clicking on each entry and then click the 'Remove' button.

Then click on 'Include a folder' and then navigate to the appropriate folder that you want to be for that specific library.

Okay, managed to change the folder locations.

How do I get rid of these kinds of things - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v608/steviet/folder.jpg - showing up in each folder?
