ServiceEx – Run Applications as a Service

ServiceEx is a freeware Windows application that allows a normal program to run as a Windows service. Currently it is command line only. A version with a GUI is forthcoming. In the meantime, configuration options are specified via an .ini file that must be created prior to running ServiceEx.

Offline files save to alternate partition

This can be done through a Directory Junction which can redirect to a new location of offline files.
The Offline Files are stored in the folder %SystemRoot%\CSC (which usually is C:\Windows\CSC or a different drive letter in place of C). First, create a folder on a partition with large space and give it an informative name, say, D:\Offline Folders as a suggestion.
You need to delete the existing folder and create a junction in its place. For this, boot into Safe Mode as an administrator and delete the CSC contents and folder.
del /s /q %SystemRoot%\CSC should to the job.
Having created the new location folder, and deleting the existing CSC folder, now is time to create a Directory Junction for CSC folder with the following command:
mklink /J %SystemRoot%\CSC
for example: mklink /J C:\Windows\CSC “D:\Offline Files”
Now, whatever is meant for location %SystemRoot%\CSC gets directed to the new location.
I hope this helps.
Note: The quote marks in “D:\Offline Files” were required because of a space character in the folder name, otherwise not necessary.
