A common problem that people have in Windows is running out of disk space on the C: drive. Because the C: drive is the default location for user created documents, photos, and music (among others), it’s not simply a matter of getting another hard drive. You also need to move all of these special folders to the new disk.

You only need some instant wit and one small (yet nifty, I tell ya) tool released by Microsoft called “Tweak UI”. With this tool, you can transfer (or relocate) so called special system folders like “My Documents”, “CD burning cache folder”, “My Music/Pictures” and many others to another drive.
The Tweak UI method should work for most everyone except Vista users. In Vista (and partially in XP) it’s a little easier: you can right click on the Documents, Photos, or Music folders, click properties, select the location tab, and move the folder to its new location.
