[SOLVED] Force iCloud photos to use a drive other than C drive

I am in the process of putting my entire (massive) photo collection into iCloud. Yes, I bought the 2Tb storage plan for this purpose. The problem is, icloud for windows only allows, it seems, for icloud photos to reside in C drive. I have a 100gb SS C:drive, which quickly filled as I dragged my photo folders into icloud on my pc. I have a hard drive D with 1 T that I would like it to utilize, but I cannot move it. Any suggestions?

First suggestion - A 100GB drive or partition for the C is pretty much TooSMall these days.
Second suggestion - Use something other than iCloud.

Possibly the mklink function. Fool the application to think it is elsewhere.
