Default Re: Moving program files 'Warning' messages

Most programs will NOT work after being moved. However, there is one possibility how to make them work. Download utility called junction (, this will create symbolic links to directories (same as in Linux). Now move your programs from c:\XYZ to e.g. d:\XYZ, delete c:\XYZ directory, and create a symbolic link with the same name instead, pointing to D: drive. Everything will work then

This is my own directory structure, with many symbolic links to different HDDs/DVDs, though they are all linked to C:, for convenience:
