Is it possible to run a .EXE file with the subfolders(&files) on different drives?

    I have two hard drives installed on my computer. The first one is 7GB and is running Windows XP. The second hard drive is 6GB.

    I would like an .exe file on the second drive to find and recognize random sub-folders(with files) that I moved to the first drive. Is that possible? I assume I would have to go into the registry and change a couple of paths, but I don't know the way.

    In case anyone is wondering, I am installing Final Fantasy XI: Online onto the 6 GB harddrive but the minimal requirements for this game is 8.5 GB. I want to spread a couple of folders around between the two drives so I can play the game w/ all 3 expansions installed.

    Yes, I know I should just buy a cheap 20+GB hard drive so I won't have to worry about this, but I'm not...at least not yet. :) Plus, I'm also curious to know if this is possible.

    Thanks to all who reply.
