I usually like to have a data-drive, and to have my system drive lean - only OS, programs and data closely connected to programs, that a user don't need to know about.

Are there any tools that easily let me do this in Windows XP - Windows 7?

In XP the Powertoys could do this to some extent, but its not there in later versions.

I am not good with regedit, but I imagine you could do this with scripts.
