I was reinstalling this OS, and thought I would be a little fancy by installing my OS on an SSD, My programs on a seperate HDD, and my user files on a seperate drive.
I did all the necessary work arounds for the users just fine which is probably something you should always do anyway as keeping data files seperate from program and system files is useful.
However, the way Windows handles programs makes seperating programs from system files a hassle. For this I also did all the necessary work arounds and put in my junctions. Every 3rd party program installs just fine onto the seperate HDD. Its microsoft's software that seems to hate this concept of soft linking. IE9 hard linked, Live hard linked. Worst of all, after install I cannot make a junction from Program Files on the C to Program Files on the P drive. Don't have proper permissions to delete folders that are not even in use. The thing I could do is rename the folders and make a junction from within. Can't delete the renamed folders.
