Want to move User Accounts from C to D drive
Just bought a laptop that has the drives divided in such a way that the C
drive (where my User accounts sit right now) has only 30 gb... and the D
drive has 105 gb.

Given that all my music and pictures take up a lot of space... and will be
under my user profile... I'd like to move my user profile to the D drive...

However, it's not letting me do that very successfully. Any advice/help

Do it a different way. There is no reason that your music and pictures and
whatever have to be saved in the Windows-defined "User accounts". Create
directories on the D drive and save them there.

Hi,

You can't move the user account folder, but you can move the data folders
within it. Right click one of them, such as Pictures, and select properties.
On the location tab, you can move this folder to your D drive. Same goes for
Documents, Videos, etc.
