Move Steam Games to another drive?

I have two partitions on my machines and the first one is always full so I’ve had to move games to the second partition from time to time. That means moving files and directories and opening a cmd prompt as an administrator to run mklink.

Well, it just got easier with Steam Mover. Nice GUI that uses xcopy, rd and mklink to copy Steam games to another drive.

It worked a treat moving 5GB of files over this evening!

Oooh, that’s going to be very useful. I have a new drive on its way and need to free up a load of space on my C drive so I’ll be definitely giving that a whirl. (is this the point where you say it’s not available for noobs running Windows?)
