new SSD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey everyone

ok so i just got a new SSD (40GB intel) for my OS (Win7 64bit) and i want to use it for my "core programs" obviously. So my question is how can i set my second hard drive as the main thing programs install to or downloads go to? i have everything i want right now on the SSD that i want at this point, but i want to start making the 1TB HD as my main thing to install too. Most things have the option of installing to which "Disk" but is there a setting that i can just make everything go the 1TB HD?

Thanks everyone for helping! thumb.gif

Assuming that your storage drive is D, just change the C to D when asked for install location when installing a program. (D:\Program Files\*name of application* instead of C:\Program Files\*name of application*)

For documents (if you are using Win7) you need to go to C:\Users\*username* right click each folder and select the "location" tab.

Change the "C" to "D" and it will move your default folder location to your storage drive.
