Yes it's contributing.
Witcher 3 is a special case, because it needs the game to be on C:\, along with the Witcher Mod Staging Folder on C:\, because it also need to access the appdata, or some other folder in order to be able to pick Hardlink
If you go with Symlink (Although I heard tell that the Script Merger now works with SYmlinks) the merging won't work
YOu might want to try MOVE Method
AH MAN! That is ridiculous Witcher has to be on C. However, I played Witcher all the way through - finished it about 3-4 months ago - with the game and Mods on my D drive without any problems. I used WMM as my Mod manager back then. WMM doesn't give a s*** what drive anything is on. Maybe this is a Vortex issue with Witcher 3. Did Vortex have a weird upgrade that messed with how Witcher is handled that is causing this problem. Maybe I go back to WMM.
What is MOVE method?
