Default Windows Vista "My Documents" to D drive?

I have the "My Documents" Folder along with all the user settings in the C drive with only 2 gb left. I want to switch it over to the D drive that has 85+gb left. I know I did this in XP once, but I forgot how to replicate this technique in Vista (or I just forgot the technique overall).

I messed everything up on my computer. I tried to take a shortcut and I paid for it. How do I restore everything back to its original status? I can't even click on any from the start menu.

It says it refers to something that is not available.


I hope this won't require a re installation.

Only thing you can hopefully do is undo what you have done. If that do work then a re-install will be required.
