So you would have to move them after it saves it to my documents or re-route the original save place

Ehhhh.... yeah.

Some games hard code the default to that location, so you will just have to remember to grab them. I typically back up my "my documents" folder before reinstalling, and just write portions of it back after I've reinstalled the games.

I have a saved games directory where I try to keep everything up to date in one place. There are probably ways to get around that but I haven't looked into it since it works fine for me.

No. It has a separate drive letter - the drive must have at least one partition on it for you to use it.*

(*Unless it's part of a RAID array - then you can have as little as 1 partition split across however many drives. But initializing a RAID array clears both disks, so that's not an option for you.)

Copy + Paste. Works for everything except programs and system file stuff.
