This question is intended to be the inverse of Replace Symbolic Links with Files, but for windows.
I have started running out of space on my SSD drive, and I found that about 12% of used space is in my installer folder (holds the .msi files for all the programs that I have installed)
I am looking for two things:
- A way to move this (or any) folder via symlink. Ideally, some powershell function that I could use to just designate a folder, a destination, and the symlink would be created in the original (pointing to the destination)
- In this particular case, a registry change that would allow the location to be move would also be helpful, but I would still prefer solution 1.
Update: The solution must work when the folder cannot be copied wholesale, and just move the files that can be copied (and create symlinks for those files)
How can this be done?
