    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink Cannot install games directly to hdd (dont tell me to install to c then move it do d) ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    Ummm cant you just tell it to install to it? While its installing select advanced install and tell it to install there? All my games are installed on another HDD not C: Drive.
