There's a good thread here which will help you achieve what you want: http://www.overclock.net/ssd/825342-...-your-ssd.html

You basically move the game files to another location and then link them back to the old location so that Steam can still find them.

Cool so what i did was started the download on my SSD, paused it, opened Steam Moved and change the directory. So now the game is currently downloading onto my HDD instead of SSD.

I guess that's what I'll have to do. I would have preferred it if it could use the files already existing, since I have a load of games I want shifted <.<

You should be able to do that by copying them to the hdd, deleting the old folder and then symbolic linking; it'll be like they haven't moved
