I have a very fast SSD secondary drive, which I"d like to use for my temporary files. I have a program I cannot change that I need to run all the time, and which uses

Documents and Settings/username/Local Settings/Temp/*

as a place where it reads and writes a lot of things from.

Is there a way to map this folder to my fast SSD drive?

All information you need to do this are in this Wikipedia article, a faster alternative is to use a RAM Disk.

Actually, the best way to do this is by changing the TEMP and TMP variables: Right-click My Computer, then click Properties. Go to the Advanced tab, then click Environment Variables, near the bottom. Edit both the TEMP and TMP variables to your desired directory.
