Using Symbolic Link to move high storage folders to new location like moving Google Chrome AppData folder to other location
Few months back I bought a new high end laptop with i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. Decided to give a shot to “SSD hard disc” over conventional hard disc. Performance of my system is incredibly fast, I have SQL Server, Jenkins, Command line Dataloader jobs, Apex static code analyzer all running almost at same time. Windows OS boots up in almost 2-3 seconds only, as compared to 15-25 sec previously. However because of decision of “SSD Drive” I had to compromise storage capacity. My “C” drive is only around 150 GB however D drive has lot of space. After analyzing many folders, I found that google chrome browser creates its temporary folder in “C” drive even though I have installed it explicitly in “D” drive. I wanted to move “Appdata” folder of google chrome to “D” drive to make sure I have enough space in “c” drive.
Recently, i had deleted the files under installer folder of windows to clean up the space and that leads to one problem. All the icons of Microsoft Office was disappeared and i was not able to set the icon anyways.
But i had worked on changing the icon in past and helped me to setup the new icon for Microsoft office 2007 or any other application.
To set the icon perform following steps:
Go to Tools | Folder Option and select “File Types” tab.
