I'm playing World at War Mods, and my SSD is only 50Gb, im wondering is there a way to redirect the modded usermaps to my spare 2Tb HDD. They end up initially in the C: drive under Users/Admin/Appdata/local/Activision, etc... My SSD fils up quickly, is there a way? Other than buying a larger SSD/HDD for C:/

Hi,

You can do what you want by using a junction.

First go here and download the program Junction.

Junction


Unzip it and put the junction.exe in any folder. I use C: since it is easier to navigate to, in the command

prompt. Just type CD\ and you are in the root directory (C:)

Then create a folder on your larger drive say G:\Activision

Copy the Contents of C:\Users\Admin\Appdata\local\Activision to the new Activision folder.

Rename C:\Users\Admin\Appdata\local\Activision to C:\Users\Admin\Appdata\local\Activision_orig

Then open a Command prompt as administrator (right click on the command prompt icon and select "Run as administrator")

Now Navigate to where you put the junction.exe (CD\ if you put junction.exe in C:\)

Then Type

Junction "C:\Users\Admin\Appdata\local\Activision" G:\Activision

Now the game will be redirected to G:\Activision.

You can delete the Activision_orig if you want once the junction is complete.

I always like to keep a copy of the original data just in case.

I appreciate this, it is very informative. but as you were posting this, I stumbled upon this program and am now trying it out. It seems to be working. I will try junction on another folder though, thank you very much.

You're welcome. That seems to be a more automated way of creating junctions.
I have never used it, however.
