Move installed applications

Consider this scenerio: You have some programs installed in drive C and now the drive is running out of space. You wish to reallocate the programs to another drive but cut-pasting the programs won't work. You don't even have the setup files of those programs, so you can't reinstall them on another drive. What will you do? Enter Application Mover

Application Mover is a tool that relocates installed programs from one path to another on your hard disk. Application Mover takes files found in the path specified in the 'Current Path' field and moves them to the 'New Path' path. Application Mover scans the windows registry for references to files located in the 'Current' field and changes those references to the 'New' path. Application Mover also scans all windows shortcuts in the Start Menu and adjusts path references to the new program location. Finally, *.ini and Install.log files present in the original program path are checked for strings matching the old path location. If found, these strings are changed to the new location. Confirmation dialogs are available if you enable the 'Confirm changes' checkbox . If a file is 'busy' and cannot be changed to the new location, a reboot prompt is offered. Pending changes are then completed after the reboot.



  1. Is this a freeware?Checked the site -says 30 days trial with restrictions on features...


  2. No, it's not a freeware. Not every software is free. Sometimes you have to buy them too!! :)
