You need to use Link Shell.

http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/hardlinkshellext.html

The problem is, most games and programs store tons of references in the registry. When you move their files, they don't know where to look for stuff.

Using link shell, you move the program/folder to where you want it, and then right-click it and "Pick Link Source" - then you go back to the original location and "Drop As -> SymLink" - your OS will think it's in both locations at the same time (while knowing where to fetch the data from), keeping registry stuff from breaking. Origin will be able to find it, but it'll be on your HDD. thumb.gif
