[Tutorial] Relocating Your Program Files and Users Directories

14 posts in this topic

Partitioning doesn't mean you lose space, but it does mean a lot less hassle if you're constantly switching OSes, like I do.

But yeah, if you get an old PC which isn't going to have a lot of stuff on it, go ahead and put a *nix on it!

I'm so glad I wrote this back when I remembered it all from memory. Using this as we speak, and I've used it way more times than I would have thought.

Also, 60gb for C: has been working out pretty well for me. There was a mere 16gb free when I just formatted. You could probably make do with a smaller C: if you took the time to relocate C:\ProgramData as well, but good luck tracking down all the references to it. What's outlined in the OP is pretty battle tested by this point.

Reminds me of the Coup de Grace megatutorial I made back in the day on Halo modding. It basically immortalized my peak modding knowledge, so if I ever get back into it then I just have to re-memorize that tutorial. Then all the other little things are just second nature.
