  Giggle n' Bits 09:18 25 Nov 2019

Hello Im building my new Desktop with Windows 10 Home. I have a Samsung SATA SSD & also a Samsung Barracuda Sata HDD. I do not know how to install Windows 10 when you have these 2 Drives. I am understanding that I install 10 on the SSD but do I also have my Sata Hard Drive also connected at the same time when installing 10 ? Also I understand that the Sata HDD is used for my Storage of Documents, Pics, Music & SSD is for Windows and programs Thanks

As *Fruit Bat /\0/* says. You can check that; if you open the Documents folder on the SSD and right click the test word doc - properties - general tab and look at the location. You have the E documents folder showing on the SSD hence if you delete a document there you're effectively deleting it from the E drive Documents folder.
