Moving programs from boot drive to storage drive

  JJadams 19:58 02 Jan 2017

I know this question gets asked alot, but I have windows 10 installed on my 120gb ssd, I also have a 1tb hdd that has nothing no it and is completely useless because all of the program files etc is installed on the ssd, the ssd is nearly full too, is there actually a safe way of doing this? I'm quite new to this too.

Keep you OS and Programs on the SSD, but store all you files on the HD.

To move them you can "Drag and Drop" or "Copy and Paste". Do not delete them until you are sure that the move has been successful. When saving new files, select "Save As" and specify the HD Drive letter.

Next time you download and install a program select custom install and browse to he HDD to install it there instead of under program files on the SSD.
