    Default User's profile is in c:\Users\Account1\*.*

    But I need to change the location from c: to d:

    I found the way to move in Vista is to move one by one by Right click at
    each folder i.e. \Users\Account1\Documents, \Users\Account1\Downloads,
    \Users\Account1\Music

    The way to move like process above is corrected?

    Yes, that is correct. You will not be able to move the hidden AppData
    folder though. I also have made a batch script to make Junction Points,
    pointing at the new locations. I do not actually remember why I did this,
    but there was a point to it.
