Not sure if want I really mean is correct in the title but want i want to happen is that I installed Windows 8 on my SSD because that's easier for me, and if I have to restore windows, I still have all my files, but since I installed it as my C: drive EVERYTHING that I download goes onto my SSD and not onto my HDD and even even I delete the file form the SSD it'll magically appear back onto it. Any ideas on how I could just keep the program files on my SSD and the actual downloads from Steam, Chrome etc. on my HDD?
I suppose you could setup a folder on your storage drive and when you download a file instead of just hitting "save" you could hit "save as" and redirect it to your storage drive. That's what I did on Win7 anyway.
Steam, download a tool called "Steamtool". You can use this tool to manage where you store the contents of the common folder.
Haven't looked into Chrome, but with IE and Firefox, you can redirect Download, cache and temp files to a directory on another drive, I know Google had talked about addiing it to Chrome but haven't seen anything on that from them yet (haven't really looked though)
