I've tried several times now to migrate
Program Files (x86), and
AppData to my second HD with various degrees of success. (I have already migrated my User directories to the second HD with the "Location" tab in their Properties.) For the most part, everything is fine, except for a few features misbehaving;
0x80070005(some relevant issues on the GitHub page)
What I did:
rmdir /s /q
mklink /J(I tried both as
/dwas suggested in another question here)
Again, for the most part, this procedure was very successful. Programs are successfully installed to the second HD by default, everything in AppData and its subdirectories is installed to the second HD, and my SSD has more free space than ever.
I've tried everything short of replacing all instances of the old directory paths in Regedit with the new paths, which I am hesitant to try due to countless warnings on this and other sites.
What can I do to solve my issues with the Start menu and other Windows features that are misbehaving?
