Changing Location of AppData

When I installed Windows 7 I moved the Users Folder to another Drive.  I used SSD (Drive C) for the Operating System - but moved all the data to a large drive (Drive F).

I have since noticed that Windows 7 is reading the AppData folder which is located on Drive F.  Is there any way of moving that folder only onto Drive C.

Below is a question that I asked a while ago on moving the Users Folder and explains how I approached it.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Within each folder in AppData, right click it and choose properties.  On the location tab, simply choose the new location.  The video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqqk7FhPPjE might prove useful if you have problems.
