How to Create Symbolic Links in Windows 8, 7, Vista for Extra Space

How to Create Symbolic Links in Windows 8, 7, Vista for Extra Space

Recently my small 120 GB solid state hard drive was running low on space, and since I don't have the time right now to format my hard drive and re-install everything from scratch I used something called Symbolic Links to move large program installations like Grand Theft Auto 4 to another hard drive. This freed up 20GB on my C drive in a few minutes, which is much faster than uninstalling the game, reinstalling the game, then adding all the mods and configurations to a fresh installaiton of GTAIV. Let's face it, if you customized or highly configured any software on your PC, you know what a pain in the ass something like this can be. Symbolic links are glorified shortcuts. A typical shortcut on your desktop launches your programs or games from the desktop by accessing the correct installation folder, usually found in the program files folder on your c drive. Now a symbolic link allows you to move a folder to another location, then create a link saying hey whenever you are looking for ProgramX on the C drive, go to the D drive instead from now on. That's pretty much it. You are creating a shortcut for your OS, so that you don't have to go through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling a program. Usually it's not a big deal, but if you have a custom program that's been modified heavily after the installation, you are better off using a symbolic link instead of trying to re-do all of your customizations after you reinstall the program on another hard drive. So with that being said, let me show you how I moved my GTA installation from my C drive to a new solid state hard drive I just bought. Now for the purposes of this video, I moved my GTA installation back to my C drive, just so that I can demonstrate the entire process to you guys. Okay here we go. Why Should You Create Symbolic Links? • Move large files or folders to another drive without going through the dreaded uninstall and reinstall process. • It's a very fast way to free up space! • Freeing up space on your Hard drive is especially useful if you are running a solid state hard drive { SSD} as your drive C:\ • Sync Folders with multiple computers such as media folders, photos, movies, Dropbox, etc. • Because I'm going to show you how and you're going to be smarter than your friends afterwards!

http://www.quesomanrulz.com/ http://twitter.com/quesoman - This tutorial is on an excellent time saving feature built into Windows Vista and 7 that most people do not know about. Symbolic Links create a fancy type of shortcut that creates a folder that acts like its a different folder which is useful for when you want to store data in once place, but something like a program needs it to be in a different place.

Today Apple is the most profitable company in the world and it very recently became the first trillion-dollar publicly-traded company in America. And yet just two decades ago Apple was on the verge of bankruptcy; surprisingly, it wasn't Steve Jobs that saved them, but their biggest rival at the time: Microsoft. Throughout the 1990s Microsoft was expanding aggressively, achieving a staggering 90% market share in the personal computer market. Apple, meanwhile, was in rapid decline: developers were making fewer and fewer applications for the Macintosh, while Apple's license for Microsoft Office was expiring. Things were looking grim, until at Apple's yearly conference, Steve Jobs made a very surprising announcement. Steve Jobs announced Microsoft would be one of Apple's key strategic partners. Microsoft would invest $150 million into Apple in exchange for non-voting shares and in exchange would license Microsoft Office to Apple for another 5 years. The audience reaction was mixed, but ultimately this proved to be the saving grace for Apple. Without this capital infusion from Microsoft, Apple would've gone bankrupt in less than 90 days. So why did Bill Gates do it? Why did he save Apple? In truth, he wasn't doing it out of the kindness of his heart. Instead, he noticed the looming threat of anti-trust regulations. He knew the Department of Justice was getting ready to break up Microsoft on monopoly grounds, so he did his best to prop-up his competition. Essentially, he saved Apple to save Microsoft. When the anti-trust threat had been resolved in 2001, Bill Gates sold his stake in Apple and moved on. Of course, as we now know today, Apple eclipsed Microsoft (and every other tech company) and Bill Gates' original $150 million stake would've been worth over $50 billion today. He missed out on quite some gains! Under the kind patronage of Nagabhushanam Peddi, Dan Supernault, Samuel Patterson, James Gallagher & Brett Gmoser.
