Make my second hard drive default storage.

Hello everyone. I recently built my first computer. Anyways I started off with just a 128g ssd. Now that I have the money I bought an additional hard drive. I'd like to make this default if possible as my ssd is nearly full. Does anyone know how I would go about this?

  1. For things in your user folder (downloads, pictures,videos) you can right click on these directories and go to properties>location and point them to wherever you like, such as a similarly named directory on a different drive. Those are the most common places for things to get stuck automatically. Dropbox lets you do them same in it's advanced settings (move to a different location). In any program that has an explicit download location you'll have to change it manually within the program.

  3. Looked through them. However I thought it would just be simpler to do it manually. It only takes a few extra seconds so no big deal.
