I have an 128gb SSD that currently runs the OS. It is labeled as the root directory C:/ I have a secondary drive that is 600gb and labeled E:/ Everything runs properly but the games. Some of my game installs require to be in the C:/program files x86 directory otherwise they do not run properly. Due to the limited size of the SSD, I can not have everything run off of it, and want to have the vast majority, if not all of my games running solely off of the E:/ drive. Is there a way to create a directory or trick it into thinking it is indeed in the C:/ program files x86 directory when it is actually installed and stored on the E:/ drive and run correctly without crashing? My current os is windows 7 x64. I would like to be able to keep the SSD as my os drive and then the 600gb HDD solely for games and other applications. Ideas?

Thank you kindly

I might make an Win32 GUI app for this in C# if there is demand for it.
