Windows 8 question ( SSD + HDD )

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, so i just installed windows 8 pro, and i have it on a 120gb hard drive, but I also have a 1tb media drive.

If i copied all my music, movies, pictures, etc to the respective folders, ( "my pictures", "my music" etc ) it would fill up my SSD

how can I re-path them to my 1TB drive so that I can continue to use the native windows 8 muisc player/video and picture viewers and not fill up my SSD.


Thanks

Right click on My documets/pics folder and Properties.
There you can set location. Click add and select folder to connect with the Picture/Vid/whatever folder.

RIght click on each of the "My Documents", etc folders and add a location. Then make the new location you added as the default.

excelent, thanks guys, I was holding off windows 8 until the commercial release date, so i'm banking on the OCN members who tinkered with it early to help me along.

I couldn't pass up $15 for a legit OS
