Hi all, I just installed a SSD and am using my previous HDD for storage. The problem is most installed programs are going to the SSD C: Program Files(x86) folder; Google installer Pack (4 apps) COD, Adobe, etc.
I understand its best not to install there in order to preserve the SSD. But I'm unable to redirect them to the storage drive. Any advise?
Thanks

I would like to set it this way
Drive 1
Corsair Force 115GB SSD - 2 partitions
(57GB) C: Windows 7/Intel Control Center/Intel Rapid Storage Tech/MS Net Framwork/Sys Requirements Lab

(47GB) C: NortonVirus/GPU drivers/AMD GPU Clock Tool/
Drive 2
Western Digital Cavier Black 1TB
(150GB) F: Third Party Software/Installed Programs/Moved Windows Folders/Call of Duty/Age of Empires
(600GB) G: Storage files, pictures, documents etc.
(100GB) H: Reserved for Ubuntu/XP
(100GB) I: Windows Backup

I can confirm from experience that there are some programs for which the installers don't really give you a choice where to install them.
