It changes all Registry references as well as all files - works perfectly for me.
What "free"? they do have a "purchase information and pricing." page. not even telling which versions are free for which purpose.

As others mentioned, you can't really move apps to another drive without uninstall/reinstall steps, but you can change the default installation path so that all future apps will end up in the desired location. Please see the following tutorial on this site - it's a simple registry mod.

I am interested in learning this procedure but cannot access it. Has it been removed or don't I have the necessary authority?

In general this isnīt possilble because of the registry entries.
But for "simple" programs you can edit the location path in the registry.
On the other hand there are programs which donīt require registry entries, do it works for them.

  1. I wish the morons who say that you absolutely can't do something would stop and take a little time and research the task.
steam mover and app mover both work and do exactly what some say you can't
