You can symlink the whole directory, or just the 'chain' directory (which consumes the most space since it holds the copy of the blockchain).

I have it set up with symlinks and it's stable through upgrades (3 for me so far) and usage.

If you're unfamiliar with symlinks, this would be a good start:
Wikipedia - general on symbolic links: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link
Windows: http://lifehacker.com/5496652/how-to-use-symlinks-in-windows
Nix + general: https://wiki.debian.org/SymLink

Or search for symbolic link / symlink / junction (older), and find what suits your context.
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0...

Thanks for help. The client is extremely slow and needs too much cpu and ram, this is beyond any discussion. Normally I use the -datadir option, this works for nearly all cryptocurrencies for portability (I have actually about 150 in use). I don't use online wallets for security reasons since 2011.

No problem  :)

It's gonna get better; already did, comparing last three updates - in my case, resource allocation halved since 0.8.2.
Remember, it's still actively developed, and ver. no. is less than 1, so give it a benefit of a doubt you would give to any other beta software.

Best way to run such hungry clients without problems is to use a cpu usage limiter for processes like "Battle Encoder Shirase" (works with Win 7), otherwise its not funny to run such software !
