As a followup on my guide on how to move Lightroom to another drive I came across a obstacle I hadn't seen coming. How to handle your preset folder especially if you work on a external hard drive. Lets face it its really great to be able to work on multiple computers but not so much if your favorite preset is sitting on your laptop.
After googling around for a bit I found that the simplest solution would be to make a symlink (symbolic link). Pointing from C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom to your preferred location. I am now storing it on my external drive along side with my Lightroom catalog and raw files F:\Lightroom_presetfolder.
Before we make the symlink you have to make a backup of your Lightroom preset folder and make a copy on your preferred location. Navigate to your folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe right click the Lightroom folder and copy it to your preferred location, I wanted it to be on my external had drive so I just copied it to my F drive and named it Lightroom_presetfolder to be able to find it easier when needed.
After copying the folder I renamed the original Lightroom folder to Lightroom.bak, just as a precaution if a file got corrupted during the move.
Now it is time to create the symlink witch i super easy on a windows computer, open a comand promt by typing cmd in search right click cmd.exe and press run as administrator, copy the following to notepad and make sure you alter the red highlighted to your preferences.
mklink /D "C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom" "F:\Lightroom_presetfolder"
You should now in your C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\ have have a symbolic link looking loke a shortcut and a folder called Lightroom.bak.
Tadaa that's it launch Lightroom and verify your presets are working and they are all there. if you ever want to roll back or regret all you have to do is delete the symlink and rename the Lightroom.bak to Lightroom.
