Windows 7: large appdata folder on ssd, can i save it somewhere else?

large appdata folder on ssd, can i save it somewhere else?

Hi there. Trying to free up some space on my measly 32GB SSD. So far i've disabled hibernate which has saved me four gigs already which is great. And now i'm looking at windirsat here and i see that the program 'doubletwist' is using up nearly 2gig in the appdata folder, even though i have the actual program installed to a different HDD. So basically i'm wondering if i could move those files out of the appdata folder, but in a way that doubletwist will still read them, as otherwise it's just going to save more files in there.

Hope all that makes sense. thanks!

Hello hendoben

The only way I know of is to move the whole user folder which includes the AppData folder. Have a look at these tutorials - User Profile - Change Default Location
User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation
