Running Dropbox on removable media (aka How To Move Windows Software To Another Hard Drive)

SymMover helps you move a folder from one disk to another, and keep its “location” in Windows Explorer. Windows still “thinks” the folder is located in the same place as before, even though it’s not. SymMover achieves this by first moving the folder to its destination, and then creating a symbolic link between the source and destination. This means that software and games will still work after you move them to another disk.

SymMover is designed for moving software and games. You can easily add installed software and games to SymMover’s main window, and move them back and forth between disks.
