Trying to make secondary hard drive the main cache for all other downloads while SSD is master question.

I have a 64 gb SSD as main bootup hard drive, while i have a 1 tb hard drive for all my other stuff, games, music, apps, etc. But im just wondering if there is a way to automatically make all things that you download, go onto the secondary hard drive? Seems like an absolutely dumb question, but ive searched for an answer and nothing. Reason i ask is because everytime i download something my avail. space on my SSD goes down, even though i set the download location for the item i downloaded to the secondary drive.. Is there something that i may be doing wrong? or not realizing?

  1. yes. google "remap mydocuments folder" and it'll show you examples. you can remap mydocs, mypics, myvids, mydownloads, etc onto another hard drive, and it's a "permanent" remapping. quite handy. part of the remapping process is that windows will automatically move any existing content, so you don't need to do any work ahead of time. just make a new folder, remap, wait, and see it complete.
