By default game saves are there in my documents folder. I want it to change the save directory to something else, how can I do that?

  • What do you need this for? If you're, say, seeking to back up your data with Dropbox -- or anyway looking for a way to keep copies of your savefiles in a different folder -- I have a way. Otherwise I'm afraid you're out of luck.

First Method:

  1. Goto C:\Documents and settings\ User Name\
  2. Right Click + Drag My Documents folder to any other drive (D:, E:, F: etc)
  3. (You can also move Favorites and Desktop folder to other drives as well)

All your documents will be then saved there.

Second Method:

Use symbolic links.

  1. Download and install Hard Link Shell Extension
  2. Right click NFS Most Wanted folder in My Documents and Pick Link Source
  3. Go to the required folder where you want to save and then pick Drop as... Junction from the right click menu.

Save them Online:

Use symbolic links with Dropbox.

  1. Download and install Hard Link Shell Extension
  2. Right click NFS Most Wanted folder in My Documents and Pick Link Source
  3. Go to the My Dropbox folder and then pick Drop as... Junction from the right menu.

  • The question doesn't mention dropbox, and I think this answer should reflect that. Commented Dec 1, 2010 at 12:17
  • So dropbox should be the second method.
