Right click on My Documents, select Properties, then click Move... Select the new destination, then answer Yes when it asks if you want to move all your files to teh new location. That's it, quick and simple.

Right click My Docs choose Properties, change target to new location on your second HDD. That is it. Of course you have to say Yes when it asks if to move files :D
