26.02.2011, Happy, main   Bookmark and Share

Default User Data location

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Data aplikací\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data

Windows Vista/Windows 7
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data

%USERNAME% is name of Your account

Change User Data location

Windows XP
  1. Move folder User Data into target location, ie. D:\Chrome\User Data
  2. Modify Chrome shortcut, add following parameter into Target input after chrome.exe:
    --user-data-dir="D:\Chrome\User Data"
Windows Vista/Windows 7
  1. Move folder User Data into target location, ie. D:\Chrome\User Data
  2. As administrator run following command:
    mklink /J "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data" "D:\Chrome\User Data"

    Replace %USERNAME% with name of Your account!

    Command mklink /J will create hardlink to target folder, files from target directory will be accessible from source directory then, thus it is not needed to modify Chrome shortcut.
