    Can someone who has moved this folder off of C:\ to another drive tell me how they did it please?

    I've read a few articles on how to supposedly do it; and, when I change the registry as outlined, and reboot,
    I lose the favicon image on my task bar. I stop right there, merge the original key back, and reboot again.
    Who knows what else I might have done if I pressed on with the changed key.

    This tired ol' brain will need step-by-step instructions if you care to give them.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dick

    Dick,

    I moved the app data/roaming folder as follows:

    Right click and choose properties

    Choose Location

    Choose Move

    Choose the Location to move, then Select Folder

    Choose Apply.

    I believe this will move the folder in question. This is the method to move all data folders of your choosing. Hope this helps.

    Hi Ted:
    That was the first thing I tried, and it also fouled up my favicons on the task bar.
    So I quickly retreated from going on, and reverted back.

    For some reason, the "normal" way of doing things doesn't seem to work for me.

    Thanks for the response,
    Dick

    That is strange. Have you moved any other data folders or is this the first try to move any folders? I moved all the following folders in this manner:

    The Data Folder only includes the Roaming folder

    Well then, I have no idea why you can't move the appdata/roaming folder. Does not make sence to me. Wierd!
