I am trying to make some space on my C: partition, an SSD drive, by moving the
C:\Windows\Installer partition to the
D: drive (following this guide).
The last step is:
Launch a Command Prompt (as administrator) and execute the following command.:
junction.exe c:\windows\installer d:\windows\installer
When I do that I get the error:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:\Windows\system32>junction.exe C:\Windows\Installer D:\Windows\Installer Junction v1.06 - Windows junction creator and reparse point viewer Copyright (C) 2000-2010 Mark Russinovich Sysinternals - www.sysinternals.com Error creating C:\Windows\Installer: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.
When I try to remove the file I get:
C:\Windows\system32>rmdir C:\Windows\Installer The directory is not empty.
And when I try to look what's inside that folder I get:
C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\Windows\Installer C:\Windows\Installer>dir Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is F8DE-4477 Directory of C:\Windows\Installer File Not Found
So, how can I create a symbolic link to the new location (Windows 7)?
