Help setting up storage/application drive

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just installed windows 7 on my ssd. I need help setting up my storage drive so it can be recognized as the default application drive. As of now, none of my old files are in the start menu (obviously), so i am looking for a way to transfer them.

When you install your applications you can perform a custom installation and just install the application to your secondary drive.


If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7 you can follow the link and modify the registry:Reg Edit

Do note that it's hit or miss if it works. Some programs are coded for installation to C: by default regardless of registry entries in the main OS. The only way to guarantee installation to a secondary drive is through custom installation options per each application.
