Special folders -why?

I've always hated Microsoft's virtual folders - with important stuff (i.e. the users data) buried out of sight in the same place as the users' settings, in the same partition as the OS. It makes no sense in terms of either managing files or data security. I want my files in a totally different partition, ideally. Somewhere that will be left untouched if the OS has to be over-written. Somewhere that means I can easily locate, copy and move files from by following a logical path. D:\documents for my documents P:\videos and P:\Photos for pictures and so on
