changing arma 2 user file directory

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I have been playing arma 2 free for awhile, I am going to buy combined operations but while looking at my hard drive i noticed that all the downloaded maps went into my C drive documents, which is a 30gb ssd which i try to only use for system stuff. I store all my other stuff on my E drive a 300gb hdd.

Is there any way to change the directory to me E drive, not only arma 2 but also other games? I wasn't sure to post this is video games or hard drives so i just posted here.

Yes you can make symbolic links, which is like a shortcut or a redirection, basicly the SSD will say to the computer Arma files are now over here.

If you loko in my sig there is a HOW to install steam games on seperate drives, I do that with symbolic links. Have a look if you dont get it then report back.

Thanks I was thinking about shortcuts but I didn't know how. Now I can finally put all my music on gta 4 as well.
