How To Move Windows 7/VISTA User and Program Data Folders Pre-User Creation - Page 8

post #71 of 73
Perfect, thanks!

One more question, which has probably already been covered but I would like some clarification.

Regarding the issue of installing some programs on C: and some on D:, I would like to install games on D: and only Win7 and a few select programs on C: - I know that you can manually create a Program Files folder on D: and manually change the drive letter during most program installations, but some install packages don't give you that option.. is there a way to make them install to D: instead of using something like steam mover after they have already been installed?

Is there a way to have Windows make the default program install location go to D: after the initial windows installation?

Dunno why this thread has been abandoned. I am about to install Windows again and this is the method I am gonna use to move User folder once again.

Edit: Or maybe not.. Some crucial screenshots are missing.. So I guess I will have to move the Pics, Docs etc folder manually.
