I'm trying to keep my usage of C: down becaus its on an SSD (limited room).
Is there a way to move the DB for BitCoin to a different drive ?
I dont see an option in the client to select a different DB  file location.

Running Windows 7 64 Bit.

Thanks for any advise.
My "last resort" is to try a symbolic link, but I'd prefer if the app itself had a setting.

Use the -datadir=path switch when running Bitcoin.
