Is there any way to change the name of Program Files folder of Windows? Its annoying in certain circumstances since there's a space within the name.
Windows 7 or any other versions of Windows.
I have a small solid state drive on my work PC, 56.5Gb in size, that has my install of Windows 7 on it.
Here is a break down of the biggest folders/files:
Windows\: 22.1 Gb
Program Data\: 6.9Gb (90% of which is in \Microsoft\Search)
Program Files (x86)\: 4.8Gb (50% of this is in \Common Files)
Program Files\: 1Gb
I am running Windows(8.1) 32 bit and I have my disc partitioned to several logical discs. 1 for OS, 1 for data and 1 for applications. Haven't been able to find answer to my question: Can I do the same partitioning with Windows 64? Are there any known problems with that? What about the fact, Windows 64 use 2 program files folders, could that be a problem?
In Windows there’re perhaps only a couple of important folders (by important I mean important in my logical picture of the Windows file system) in the installation drive (in my case C:\). Namely Program Files and Windows. I simply stay away from Windows folder and the “add remove program files” is good enough to handle the program files folder of Windows.
