Hello again,

I would like to move my .minecraft folder off of my SSD and onto my HDD but do not know what text to enter into a BAT file specifically for my drives. The drive location that I want to store this directory on is at Z:\my games\minecraft\.minecraft\

If you could help me out or show a better way that would be awesome :) 

Thanks,
--J.T.

You can accomplish this by creating a .bat file. run the batch file where ever you want minecraft to be installed. If you use a desktop shortcut link the shortcut to the batch file.

copy and paste the following into a notepad file.

@echo off
Title Minecraft Launcher
set APPDATA=%CD%\
start %CD%\minecraft.exe

When you save the file save it a Minecraft.bat

Make sure the extension is .bat

Before running create a folder titled "bin" and another titled "data" within the same directory. Place the minecraft application in the bin folder. after ward you can launch the batch file.

Try changing the .bat file to...

set APPDATA=%CD%\data
bin\minecraft.exe

Sorry for the false info.
