I'm looking at Installing my Programs and Games onto another Drive (Windows XP) is there anything that I need to amend in Regedit or vise versa to make this happen?

Thanks

Can I modify the Registry? I've looked on Google and it says you can changes the paths???

Modify the registry? - - No leave the registry absolutely alone particularly while you are making changes of the sort you want to do.

The only modification later that might be helpful as a final tidy-up, is to use CCleaner in its "issues" option. This will safely clear away any orphaned or left over bits from the re-installations you have made.

All I had to do was change the paths in the regedit

That seems fine. And I've moved the "My Documents" onto the Programs Drive Now I need a workaround for Outlook Express:

"Outlook Express Cannot Be Started The Application was unable to open the OutLook Express Message Store"

This is a new Install Of XP

I got the Documents Transfered over to the "Other Drive" But I'm faced with the error with Outlook Express.
