Hello,
If you use Windows and have NTFS file system on the drive where
$InstallationDirectory is placed, you can convert corresponding subfolder
into a junction point referring to any directory on any drive. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junction_point
for details.
I recommend for this "Junction" utility written by Mark Russinovich:
