Not really. Some games are not coded well enough to be installed on
anything else but the C drive.

I has just assumed that the trick performed with hyperfil.sys could
just as easily be performed on a games folder.

However, since TBU has placed a 'priority' selection on the backing up
panel, they need for shorter backup times has receded.

Once hard disk prices are back to normal, I will be doubling (at
least) my PC's capacity, both its internal and external.

That's a pain. I use this to get around that issue.

Thanks for those useful links. Now to get the bigger hard drives to
accommodate the chance.
