I have windows 8 and frequently used apps on my ssd to boot from that drive and everything else to go to my mechanical hard drive but everytime i go to download and install it wants to save on my ssd. I have to manually change it whenever i install or download something. Is there a way to make it default to install to my mechanical hard drive?

For downloading, you can set in browsers the default download location.
For installations, they are set by the programmers, usually on the C:/ Program files, so you have to manually select another folder.

Oh so i can't have installations automatically go to the hard drive? I read something about copy pasting the user files from the ssd to the hdd but im not sure what to do.
