How can i change the ProgramData's location?

usually in default its located in "C:\ProgramData" with 32bit/64bit and its hidden i want to change the location to another driver like i manage to change the Appdata to another driver using Regedit this is very useful for me cause every time i get a virus that will end up reformatting my OS my files stored in Appdata will be saved and it saves me a lot of time but i can't find how to change ProgramData in regedit so anyone here knows how?
