How to set up separate user accounts when WIndows is on C: and data is on D: Data

HP Recommended
HP Laptop 17t-by100
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just got a new HP laptop.  The C: drive is 118 Gb and Windows 10 runs from the C: drive.  It also has a D : Data drive, which is a 1T hard drive. I want to set up two users on my computer-1 for me (as administrator) and one for a second person who uses it regularly.  I do not use windows login (and will not)-I use a local login and will set up the other person as an other user without a Microsoft account. The problem is, my files (in total) are too big to put on the C: drive, so they have to go on the D : drive.  But, all users can access the D : drive.  How can I move user folders to the D drive? so only the user can access them?
