I am helping a friend with his windows 7 computer. He has a solid state drive for his boot drive, drive 0,, and that drive is 120 GB. He also has a 1TB SATA drive as drive 1. By default, his user profile, my documents, etc is on the boot drive aka C: drive. How can we change his system so that his profile (my documents, pictures, videos, favorites, desktop, etc) is on drive 1, which is his E: drive. We want the defaults for his profile to always take him to the E: drive.

Is there an easy way to do this?
