With this provision, we can make Win 8 work even faster. I have seen the size of appdata increasing real fast inturn hindering performance of the boot drive.

Please adjust Variables settings and see if it helps:
1. Right click Computers, click Properties.
2. Click Advanced system settings in the left pane and switch to Advanced tab.
3. Click Environment Variables button, edit the user variables settings and point the “temp” and “tmp” folders to another location.
In addition, I think you can also try creating junctions:
