Hello,

I just built my first computer and I had a question.

I have two hard drives in it. One SSD for the operating system, and a standard HDD for storage.

My question is, is there a way to configure it so that all my documents and things automatically save to the HDD, not to the SSD?

Hello, & Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

Answer is yes. Here's the MS document that gives you step by step directions to do just that

Can do that for all your library folders. Most efficient would be to set your photos, or videos for less used storage on Volume D. Could keep your My Documents on the SSD, where Outlook files, Quicken, etc. files get stored for fast retrieval if needed.
Just a suggestion - lots of ways to set it up!

Enjoy you new really fast ssd!
