Windows 7: Can I Edit A Junction?

Can I Edit A Junction?

Hello. I have about 15 junctions. Rather than remove them and recreate them pointing to another folder, I would prefer to edit or modify the existing junctions and change the path they point to.

Example: E:\steam\steamapps\common\game is a junction to d:\steam-storage\game

I would like to just edit d:\steam-storage\game to point to another folder.

The only things I can find point to me needing to remove and recreate the junctions, which is tedious.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Until someone more familiar replies. Have a look at Steam Mover. It will also work for things besides games.

Drag and drop new junctions, or go to properties and the new link tab to change the target.
