In the previous document Installing Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), during installation we created a partition for the C-drive, and we created a new drive in Windows 7: Format New Drive Partition. No we are going to configure the Documents folder to point to the new drive so that documents are saved to this new drive by default.

Click on the Windows Start icon (bottom left) and Right Click on Documents. Select Properties.

Press the button labeled Include a folder


On the left side of the screen, scroll down and click on Computer

Select your drive and/or folder (in this case the E drive) and press Include Folder

Your selected drive/folder should now appear

Right click on your drive/folder and select Set as default save location

Select the old (default) My Documents folder and press Remove

Then press Apply to save these changes

And press OK to finish
