    what folders are common...

    Current ISP/FF clashing prevents me from answering within an existing topic...

    Moving ProgramData and Users may be problematic down the road for any Windows ReInstall, and some major Windows FixIt programs, nonMicrosoft and Microsoft alike.
    I would feel safer in simply creating Data Folders on drive D, "teach" "instruct" all programs [as you use them] to place all created works into drive D designated folders.
    Windows Repair, Windows Rebuilding, Windows ReInstalling probably will reMake all its default folders [including ProgramData and Users] and reSet all settings back to said default folders.

    Yes, clean installs will reset all OS folders to the primary drive, but images will not, provided
    the image was completed AFTER the folders were redirected.

    MS alows for many of their common folders to be redirected, like docs, movies, photo, favorites, etc.

    If not you can always create a "send to" redirect to whatever folder on a separate drive you choose.
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
