Is it possible to move your entire program files folder to a seperate volume?

  1. my C drive is only an 80G and right now 60G of it is full of apps. I rather like these apps and I don't want to uninstall them. Is it possible to actually move the whole folder to my terabyte and just fix the shortcut paths as needed, or is it more complicated than that?

    Hi BlackScarlet

    Yes, it is possible to do that. It's called ghosting. Acronis and Norton Ghost are two of the best programs on the market for doing this. Good luck!

    move the folder is simple -- getting your registry to sync up with the change is a NITEMARE!!!

    caveat emptor :(
