SymMover is an innovative software solution that allows the user to transfer data between different disk drives on a computer. When SymMover moves the program(s) and or folder(s) from their initial disk to another disk, it retains its location in Windows Explorer. This essentially thwarts Windows into thinking that the program(s) and or folder(s) are still located on the same drive when indeed, they are on the destination drive. The process starts with SymMover physically transferring the file(s) and or program(s) to the specified destination disk, and it then will generate a token link from the start point to the destination point. It enables users to launch the program from the initial location without the program hogging up space in that location.

Transfer data to a different disk by generating a junction connecting the new destination to the old location

  • SymMover is specifically geared toward easing the process of transferring software, programs, and games
  • Quickly performs the tedious processes of uninstalling and reinstalling software in a new location for the user
  • Allows for Solid State Drives to maintain their speed and efficiency by storing the actual bulk of the software on another drive
  • Allows software, programs, and games to launch and operate normally from their initial location
  • Provides two ways to add a folder/program/software by either selecting from an installed programs list or by manually searching the disc in a tree-branch format
  • Shows the user the status and location along with the icon and name of the software while adjusting the destination of the rest of the extra folders
  • Function to simulate free disk space in a graphic by selecting folders and showing how much space can be freed up in the initial location
  • Automatically generates the 'junction' between the initial location and destination location after transferring the actual files
  • Allows a user who has changed their mind to transfer the chosen programs and folders back to where they came from initially and delete the 'junction' using only one click
  • Has the ability to detect when a selected destination disk is too full for the transfer and will not give the user an option to transfer to that disk

SymMover is currently available to download for no cost for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

This is a freeware folder mover that acts as a file organizer for people. It helps people keep their games and other data in different parts of the computer. This software is really good to help keep people organized. There are many websites that have this available for download. You are even able to store data on a slower higher capacity disk that helps consumers move larger amount of data over to another site. I think that this is a great product for people who want to organize their data well.

Everything was fine until i tried to add folders to a different drive. Some dll files on my windows XP machine were marked as active, so the software couldn't move them. Maybe there's a simple way to make this work, but without a help file, of which CNet's review said there is one, HOW Can i make symMover work for me?

I found the drag and drop feature to be especially useful for moving files around.
