Windows 7: How to separate Program files

How to separate Program files

Hi,
I was wondering how to for example, make a program work, while it is using its core files on another file.

Example: I have a Fast HD with limited space, and i have a slow HD with lots of space.
Now, i have a program that in its folder has Core file, Videos file and .exe
If i remove one of them, it stops working. I want only core file to be on the fast HD while i want the other files running at the slow HD. How do i do that?

Long story short : I want a program to run with its files running on separate HDs.

I have many purposes to do that, since i have programs, games that i want to run faster, and mainly games have files like Videos, etc that doesn't need to be on a fast HD.

You don't, simple as that. Those files need to be found in the paths that were coded into the main executables. You either buy a larger system drive, or you install things like games to the secondary drive, if your primary drive is too small.

Yeah, I agree with DF. Even if there was some way to do it (I know it's impossible) it would REALLY slow down your Hard Drive having to go back and forth. Your drive fragementation would be HUGE.
