I have a 128Gb SSD and a 2TB hard disk. I've often hear ppl suggesting that you put only the games/big files that you are currently using on the SSD, and then move them off to TB once you are done with them.

But how does that work for games specifically? I can't exactly just cut and paste the game directory and move it, that would screw up the paths...and most of the games are tied with Steam so I can't just drag them around the folders either...what's the tip here? Or am i supposed to just uninstall it from SSD once I'm done and reinstall whenever I need them again?

or use the mklink command from an elevated command prompt

I just did the mklink think - was pretty easy.
