Using Windows 7
Overview- I have an SSD and HDD installed in my computer. I would like to have all data files (ie
AppData) saved to the HDD, this way I avoid unnecessary read/writes to the SSD.
Goal- Create symbolic link to
AppData folder so that the data is stored on the HDD but the AppData location on the SSD is really pointing to the HDD
What I have Tried- I created a symbolic link to my pictures folder on my
D:\ drive. so my command was:
> mklink /J D:\Pictures C:\Users\Pictures
For my command above, does this mean that the file is physically still located on my
C:\drive, and the
D:\drive is simply pointing to those files? or is it the other way around?
If I create a symbolic link to
D:\appDatawill programs using
C:\Users\appDatabe saved to the
D:\drive or will it still be saved to the
Will I need to delete the
appDatafolder on my
C:\drive and move it to my
D:/drive before creating a symbolic link?
