In 1995 Microsoft rolled out a new OS that made your plan go down in flames. When the OS is reinstalled, the shared DLLS and the registry will make most if not all software on the other drive nonoperational.
There are no plans to change this "feature."
I have a partition question. If I have like 4 partitions on 2 hard drives and the C drive is obviously the OS, does it mess up the the system or registry or what ever if I place programs for instance on the F drive instead of the C drive. For instance C:\Program files\Adobe,
I place it in F:\Program Files\Adobe as an example. And I am referring doing this to several programs. I guess my concern is if the C drive or OS crashes, I don't have to reload all my software. Does this question make sense?
