Storing FAF patches on a different Drive than C

FAF stores its patch files, movies etc in C:\ProgramData\FAForever\ and the installer doesn't give you the option to choose a different directory for that. If you use windows you have the option of using a NTFS junction to save space on your C drive.

  1. Cut out the entire FAForever folder from C:\ProgramData\ and put it on a drive with more space. As example we'll use D:\
  2. Open the command prompt (windows + R -> cmd -> enter)
  3. Use the command mklink /j C:\ProgramData\FAForever D:\FAForever to create a junction
