SSD and HDD music issues.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been ripping music from my cds onto my HDD through itunes. I've installed itunes to my HDD so the music would be stored there, but when I rip my cds its also storing it in "my music" folder that's on my SSD. Is there any way that I can have it so when I rip a cd it only stores it on my HDD?

Change the Location of System Folders

By Mohammad Yousef | July 2004



Do you think it’s annoying that the locations of folders such as My Pictures, My Music… are preset? What if someone wants to change these locations to a different drive or partition? It’s pretty clear that the good folks at MS have overlooked this and forgot to include such an option leaving us, end-users, with only one solution: a registry hack (unless you have third party tweaking software).



Before I start, I must warn you that the registry is a crucial part of your system and messing around with it is dangerous. No, it can’t set off some nuclear reaction but improper use of it can severely damage your system. So, I only recommend registry hacks if you’re familiar with computers or at least able to carefully follow my instructions.

1. Open Registry Editor: Click Start | Click Run | Type regedit | Press Enter
2.Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\C urrent Version\\Explorer\\User Shell Folders
3. You should find several expandable string values such as My Music, My Pictures, Favorites which contain the locations of different system folders.

Note that for the My Documents folder, the value is called "Personal" and not "My Documents". To change the location of a system folder, double-click the value representing it, change its value data to your new location and click OK.

Reboot

Thanks for the help. All of my music files are now being properly stored on my HDD, leaving my SSD clean.

You can also do the same for your "public" folders this requires a slight registry tweak.
This works for win7 64bit (confirmed) just did it for a client.

How-To-Geek: Move the Public Folder in Windows Vista

1. show hidden files and folders
This is done by opening a folder and clicking on "Organize" in the toolbar "Folder and Search Options". Then click "view" tab then click the radio button "Show hidden files, folders or drives". Then click OK.

2. Go to your pub folders. C:\\Users\\Public
Copy all the folders there to the new location.

3. Start menu -> type regedit in search bar and hit enter and agree to UAC. Browse to:
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\ProfileList
click on the "Public" entry and change the address to the new location. Close regedit.

4. Reboot then check the registry is still the same. Follow point 3 again.
Then browse to the old public folders and delete them, reboot, you're done.

Point to note: While this worked, it was not as easy to connect to the folders as regular public folders.
Typically when on the same network as a computer and "network discovery" is turned on and the correct settings for "allow users to read/write public folders" is on and "password sharing" is off. Then you have access to others folders (assuming they also have the same settings). However I noticed it would not let me read and write to the folders until I connected the computer to my "Homegroup". Which was as simple as typing in the password. Still this could be a little inconvenient in some situations.
