i just got a second hard drive to put all my games on, but a few of them keep putting data on my local drive. skyrim saves go to my documents, guild wars/guild wars 2 creates a folder in the same area. is there anyway to get this to go to the other hard drive?

There is a registry value that would point the save game files to My Documents but it's been a while and also changing it could cause issues so that would be at your own risk.

i did the command prompt, the article says i can delete the directory after, but when i do it reverts back to detecting anything on the other drive. or do i leave the shortcut and delete the .bak file?

I didn't read it completely, but what I gather is you leave the shortcut, because that is what tells windows to save/read to the new location instead.
From what I gather it should make a shortcut and the Skyrim saves, (that can get very large) are then saved to your new set location.
I've honestly never done this trick. you can move the default saves to a safe location and test to see if the trick works. If not, at least you can move the default saves back. :D
