I never really understood the methodology in this, if I wanted to install a program or game in my regular harddrive i just change the drive path.. No need to mess with registry

The only thing that this basically does is make sure nothing in the users folders stays that you don't want, which clutters up the SSD drive.

BIG problem with Ninite. It wont let me specify drive paths so basically everything gets installed onto my C drive, which is badddd I want some programs to install on the SSD while others on the hard drive! How can I do this with Ninite? It's such a cool program otherwise!

HAHA, sorry i actually had to laugh a little bit.

Let me help you out just a tab, if you click your start menu and then click your name, the right click your folders, there is a location tab that lets you tell the computer where to put your different folders. So you can right click documents and then go to location and select a different hard drive. no need to mess with the registry.

hopefully that helps a little bit.
