How to avoid saving data in C drive?

Hi All,

My SSD C: drive is 124GB. Unfortunately one of my programs saves huge of data in C;\application data.
over 40GB!!. Is there any way I can do to avoid it? I have to note that the location is not the choice of the user. I use Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks for your help

Shaul

Do you have a storage hard drive ?

If you installed the program there, maybe the data would also be stored there.

I would like the program will be stored in SSD, because of rendering performance.
Thanks

Seems performance wise they recommend to not save on externals or other partitions.
But does seem to have the options,

You can mount your secondary harddisk as a folder inside ProgramData if you are so desperate about moving them elsewhere.
