So this is the situation.

Eve-Online uses something like
C:\users\%username%\my documents\Eve\%folders%

I switch "My Documents" folder from C: drive to E:
What happens is that my documents folder is now located in E:\Documents and all related files and folders are transfered there.

Except EVE-Online which still uses the C:\users\%username%\my documents\Eve\%folders%

How do I change EVE Behaviour to use "My Documents" folder so I can have those files where I want them.

I'm assuming you're using windows and default formatting for the file systems...


Check out junctions. I've used junctions to store my steam folder on a seperate hard drive so it should work just as well for you on there. I don't recall how to setup junctions or application names so that'll require some research on your part.

You should only need to make "C:\users\%username%\my documents\Eve\%folders%" a junction to "E:\users\%username%\my documents\Eve\%folders%" or where ever your EVE folder is.
