Hi,

I've asked this before for a friend but can't find the thread and came remember the answer.

My ssd stores windows and a few games and a hard a mechanical storage drive. How.do I get all the temp files and internet crap to save to my storage drive rather than boot drive, I remember just moving temp files last time but what's the location of all the files I need to move?

Thanks

Also,

When I download a file I get the option of save or open. If I press open it just saves the file to my SSD c:users>diddle>downloads

I would like that folder to be on my storage drive as I dont want all random installers and crap on the ssd... is this possible?

I'm not sure if your issue was resolved, but if using Windows 7, I believe all you have to do is change the target path.

For example mine is set to a separate partition (E:\) on a secondary HDD.

Start>Computer>(Right-Click)Downloads>Properties

Now change the Target to the path where you want on your secondary HDD. It should migrate the folders for you (I think), it's been awhile since I done it.
