Re: [WIN7] Mess with changing User Folders Location to non C:
You'd be amazed at how many poorly coded/designed apps there are out there. The number that don't allow you to change the install directory is amazing.

People can also redirect folders, and subst drives. I just found it easier to save what I needed on another drive, but there are some prigrams which might not give the option of other folders. Except for appdata which is automatic I saved nothing to my default profile structure. It's amazing how much crap is left as dead files in that folder structure from piss poor written programs, and just to mention it many leave so much crap in the temp folders they can get to be GBs in size. Adobe for example will error after it has filled the user temp files that it didn't cleanup, and the user has to fix this bs created by poorly written software.

+1. I've set every program that saves user data files (word processors, readers, spreadsheets, photo editors, etc) to save their files to subfolders within a single, separate "data" folder on a separate drive. It makes data backup much easier and faster. I've been doing this since back in Win98 days.

I guess I should be more surprised that I have yet to come across any. I have been using separate data and application partitions for years upon years.
