Windows 7: Moving Program File's location to Seperate Disk

20 Dec 2010   #1

Moving Program File's location to Seperate Disk


I am currently building a new computer and looking at getting two Disk's.

1TB for C:/

and then was looking at mounting another 1TB as C:/Program Files, I don't want to change the folder location or anything, just want to mount the Second Disk as a Folder so Windows knows no difference.

I've looked around and people have said how to make C:/Program Files "redirect" for example D:/Program Files However I want to use the Inbuilt Function in Windows 7 when managing hard drives to mount as a folder and not assign a drive letter.

I'm just not sure how I would copy the current Program Files Content's over.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I know this isn't what you asked, but you sure you need a 1 TB folder? Having 1TB on C drive should cover everything. You could make a new folder on the other disk and call it whatever you want, have the index index it, and be able to quickly type the folder's name or its contents in the start menu search, and have it instantly appear, so you don't HAVE to make a HD into a single folder on C drive.

Having a 1TB folder drive on a 1TB HD seems like a giant waste
