Windows 10 Tech Preview build 9879, A Clean Installation... part 3: Moving User Default Data Folders

Other than only using portable applications, I also partitioned my hard drive into two:
» C:\, for Windows operating system and programs/apps,
» D:\, for data storage including Windows' user data folders like Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc.
   So my first customization after a clean installation is to move all my user's account data folders to my data partition.

Thanks, God! It works :)

   All my default data folders are now in drive D—my data partition—and Windows can automatically recognizes all my previous Favorites shortcuts in File Explorer.
   It really saves my time.

Next: Restoring all portable applications from the 7-Zip archive...
