Moving applications to a new partition?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to move my application installs to a new partition without reinstalling everything? I just finally got a partitioner so I could repartition my hd without reformatting, and want to have vista on say, 30-50GB, with my apps and data on the other partition. My used space is 40GB now with vista and apps, not sure how much free space I should leave, should I just do maybe a 60gb partition and leave my apps or try to move them (if its possible) I dont want to manually edit every apps registry entries either =x thanks in advance

I did something similar to this, what I did was mirror the drive (you can use tools like xcopy or robocopy) to do this, then I stopped every possible service and closed every file associated with the folder. I then renamed the folder to a backup name... Then create the same folder again and follow the steps located in this web site.
