Move Location of Windows Defender Data Folders

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:

Wondering if there is a way to relocate the "Windows Defender" folder under \ProgramData to a separate drive or partition.  I wanted to relocate all of the scans, updates and defintions to another folder on my D: drive.

Any takers?
:)

sure it could be done, try changing the pointers to those files in the registry.  I guess just make a new directory and point the registry there. copy your reference files to the new one.  Back up this reg key 1st so if it dont work you can put it back.  It could be more involved than this.  But its possible.

Darn!  After an update it just resets to the old location and puts new updates there.
