First Issue:
Alright so got the SSD installed with the OS and my game, shut it down to add my 1TB HDD but when I pull up 'Computer' it does not show my HDD. It only shows my SSD

After that is figured out how would I go about to make the configuration so my HDD is primary and SSD is boot. I saw a couple other posts but still dont quite get it, one of the forums I read no one was even able to verify if it was correct or not so hopefully someone has a way of showing me how to do this. (Why isnt there a sticky for something like this already?)

Alright I want to do a complete clean install to get my HDD more organized cause I'm looking at it now and crap is just all over the place on the drive there is no organization to it all its just dumping every single thing on it without putting it into proper folders

I cant format a SSD correct? I remember reading something that said it might mess it up, anyone know anything about it?


Edited: nvm, said not to do a disk defragment on it, awesome. But still need to find a way to after I put my OS and game and addons on the SSD to have everything else save to HDD
