Need help with switching the default drives from an ssd

right now my ssd is my default drive and the only use I have for it is to run windows faster or something so windows 7 was going to be installed in there. (im only a little above average with tech stuff so excuse any dumb talk). Right now its my default drive and I want to switch it with my 1tb hard drive while keeping the windows 7 files on it and not ruining the whole purpose of the files being on there to run it faster.

More about need switching default drives
  1. You find tweaks in here to default everything over to the storage drive and loads of other useful stuff http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270102-32-useful-articles-part
  2. Could you give me the link to solve my problem specifically? I went to that link and am not sure where to look
  3. Does the first one work for my problem even though its for folder and not disk drives?, the second one i cant access, and the third one isnt that just for optimizing performance?
  4. I am not sure what you want to do! You have win 7 on the SSD for speed, you want to default other items over to your storage 1TB drive to keep the SSD fast?
  5. Right now everything I download goes to the SSD, I want to make it go to my hard drive instead, and just have the SSD for Windows 7? So how do I change the default disk drive to my hard drive?

  7. Use the links I put up! If you put your document folder on the 1TB drive then all user files go there! Second one shows how to make your 1TB drive default for program installation! You may have to register with that forum to see that link!
