Since SSD's are found in more computers than ever, I have been getting many questions on how to direct data from the SSD (drive c) to a larger hard drive (drive d). I suggest using the SSD as a boot to windows and store only the necessary programs on it and than direct your data, pictures and other info to the second hard drive. To accomplish this, do the following:

The default is to use C:. To change this, do the following:

1. Click Start.
2. Click Settings.
3. Click System (Display, notifications, apps, power)
4. Click Storage in the left-hand pane.
5. Under Save locations, change the categories from This PC (C: ) to your larger HD then click the Apply button that appears.

You may need to restart for the changes to take effect. Windows will create a new folder in the new destination using your logon name. Within that folder will be new folders for the data categories you changed.

Hope this info helps.
