I have a Windows 7 system which contains a
ProgramData folder on drive C.
I now need to completely move this folder from drive C to drive D.
What is the best way to do this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
System Drive can't be D it has to be C you can move data from one HD to another or move data from one portion to another.
You need to use clone software to do this.
However if you wont to move or change programdata
There is nothing important in ProgramData that would not be recreated by the various applications you install. It is just application configuration data.
The default path is C:\ProgramData. It is stored here:
So you could create a junction point specificically for the tmp directory that is created by the GR.
The downside is that windows update does not work well with program data on a separate drive. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949977
Could you explain your reasoning?
Paragon Migrate to SSD is another option..
