How do i move my Users folder to a different Partition?

Hi, i recently purchased Windows 7 for my PC.

I want to know how to move my entire users folder (C:\Users) to my D Drive partition, which would make it (D:\Users), and then delete the Users folder from C Drive, so that all of my User data and files are stored on my D Drive partition, since my C Drive is for the OS and Drivers only. Now, i know you can move the folders within your name in the users folder, by right clicking and clicking the location tab, but this option isnt available on the Users folder itself. If its not possible to move the whole users folder, at Least find a solution where i can move my Name folder (C:\Users\Jord) to D Drive instead.

Thanks in advance

I have answered this question at least three times in recent days/weeks. Please refer to the following links. Some are on C:\Users folder (%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users folder to be more general) while others refer to the same concept but for different folders. Hope this helps.
