with a fresh install of win8 on a 128gb ssd. i want to limit the use of the drive to the OS only. and use my second ssd for apps and progs. I have a 2TB drive for pix and vids to solve the bulk issue, but I really would like the OS drive to stay nearly empty.
Yes relocating the default locations of the doc, vids, and pix directories will solve 10% of the clutter issue, however new programs and apps will be loaded to the space limited C drive. Thankfully WWW.eightforums.com has a page on "How to relocate user profiles to another partition or disk in windows 8." That has done the trick. Along with some regedit changes to redirect the win install and save locations.
