Hey All,

I have a Corsair 32GB SSD an it runs perfectly, but as of late it seems to full all the time with the capacity bar is showing as red. My intention was to have this only for my OS to have a super fast PC

I have 3 additional HDDs for music and games 1TB+ each, so all my application goes onto those HDD's

I have performed a Disc Cleanup and checked what to delete in the folders, but i dont wanna delete the wrong things, but checking all the files, they seem to be just save files and little parts of my applications

If i want EVERYTHING for an install to go to the designated drives will i have to change all the roots or will a small part always be installed to C:p artition?

If there is a way to prevent this would be appreciated :) 

Thanks in advance

Corsair 32GB SSD

You've set a tall order for yourself. Things you can try:

1. Never let anything get installed to the boot drive.
2. Move your user profile off the boot drive
3. Move your swap and temp files off the boot drive.
4. Make sure your mail is stored off your boot drive.
