How to redirect the wrfinput* and wrfbdy files?

Dear Colleges,

I have very little space in my home directory where I run the WRF model. I need to redirect the real.exe output wrfinput* and wrfbdy files to the another storage, similarly as I do for the wrfout* files with history_outname. Is it possible? I also need to redirect all rsl* files and the time-series output files (*TS, *PH, etc).Is that possible, as well?

Best regards,
There are not currently options to output all of these to different directories, but it's likely the code could be modified if you wanted to try that. It seems that an easier option would be to run WRF from a different directory, where you do actually have space. Is that possible? You can simply copy or move the entire WRF directory somewhere else.
