Hello all.
so long story short, i have a 650gig that i use primarily to install all my games to since i have a 90gig ssd.
i notice that even though i install my games to another drive, it still takes up space on my main.

not alot but since i do alot of pc gaming its adding up since all i have as my main drive is the ssd.

i do work on it (web dev) so after all is said and done and all my work programs are installed, i have about 20 gigs left. after i install a few games, space is currently @ 5 gigs..........

my question is why? why even after installing certain files on the other drive, my main still loosing storage space?

Even though you install the games on the 2nd drive, some files will still be loaded on the main (C: ) drive.
