Is safe to junction link folders in C:\windows ? I'm trying to micromanage and fine tune so that large files that are infrequently accessed are offloaded away from the SSD.
I wouldn't dream of doing this in my primary workstation, however this can makes sense for Virtual Machines. I have a VM I just created, Windows 7, and the Windows Folder is approximately 15 gigabytes. I would like to move non critical pieces of this folder via junction links (which point to another virtual hard drive letter that sits on a mechanical disk on the host).
1) (a) Which pieces (if any, or all) of C:\windows can be junction-linked to another hard disk, without creating problems?
(b) If applicable, which folders are most rarely needed in C:\windows for day to day?
