With a 64Gb SSD C Drive and space left at 5.5Gb I want to move the folders and files of C:\Windows\Installer –> D:\C_DRIVE\Windows\Installer.
There is a how to guide for Windows 7 at
It uses the mklink or symbolic link method to point to D drive:
mklink /D C:\Windows\Installer D:\C_DRIVE\Windows\Installer
Once the folders are copied over to D the files the folders on C can be deleted. To obtain the higher SYSTEM privileges, above Administrator, it first used, in W7, a bat file:
sc Create SysCMD binPath="cmd /K start" type=own type=interact
sc start SysCMD
and file removal by:
rmdir /s /q C:\Windows\Installer
This bat file just flashes in W8.
How can I change the bat file to get the correct rights to remove the c:\windows\installer folders?
