Solved

How could I redirect folders that are outside of my personal folder? More in thread.

Title pretty much says it, but, for example, I wish to redirect my Ubisoft folder to put things such as save files and what not on a different folder on my D: drive, but i still wish for it to stay in the C: drive. (I've tried just moving it, but then the games I wish to play dont even recognize its existence) any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You could use steam mover. It's just a GUI for creating and managing junction points. Basically you're tricking the OS into thinking the files are on your C drive but they're actually located on your D drive. http://www.traynier.com/software/steammover

    With the steam mover, my steam is already on my D: drive and works just fine. Its the Ubisoft game launcher that doesnt work when i put it in the D drive. I also think i may need further explanation of what a symbolic link actually does
  3. You can move any folder with steam mover. That's what the program was created for and is named after, but it is not limited to just steam.
