    With ref to Digit Business\Visual explanation\Sep 2004 "Optimise Your 80 GB Hard disc": A way to shift the program files to a drive other than C is given (Altering the registry key). This is to be done soon after installing the OS.

    DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO SHIFT A 3GB PROGRAM FILE DIRECTORY TO SOMEOTHER DRIVE WITHOUT REINSTALLING THE PROGRAMS ?

    manually change the install paths in the registry for each and every program
    then do the same for all the shortcuts ..

    Warnning :

    not all programs work through registry to find the installed path.

    some programs stores path in ini files or store direct path to folder in registry.

    u cannot garentee that such programs will work after u move all ur files and changed the path through registry
