Here's a link explaining how to change locations as well as other very good optimizations. These are all in the first link I sent you by the way lol. http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-guide-optimization-for-ssds-hdds#
If this gives you any problems just PM me and we'll go over it more. Take your time and don't let it intimidate you (it'll try real hard) but after a few steps you'll see it's no big deal.
If you dig into Sean's guide from the first link a few posts back, there is a huge amount of info. You just have to take some time and look through everything. I had to do the same thing when I got my SSDs. Most anything you'll need is in there. It has to be one of the best written guides to date!
Dang it all... just got ninja'd by the master him self lol. Edited by The Sandman - 2/7/12 at 2:48pm
