How do I set up my storage

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Heyo everybody! So with my new computer on arrival, I have been wondering how I can set it up so my SSD will load windows but all my downloads and files will go on my hard drive for mass storage. I am installing windows off a USB onto the computer off a first-time startup.

Wow, I didn't think it was that easy. Thanks! Another followup question, could I use the Windows 10 USB more than once on different computers?

First off install the os to the ssd. When booted up to the os, dont do anything yet, but start to follow these steps. Go to file explorer, "this pc".

Right click on documents. Then choose properties, then go to location, and change the C to D(or whatever letter you asign to your hdd). Repeat for desktop, downloads, videos, pictures, music etc.


When downloading steam games, go to settings, steam library folders, create a library folder on your hdd, and set it to default.

Moreover, you should check your browser's settings and select a download file located on your storage drive (HDD). Same with any sort of apps that you use in order to download or create files (eg. screen capture software). In other words, try paying attention to your warez that create data so that they write the SSD as little as possible, as they degrade after a number of writes.


As for the Windows 10 media disk, yes you can use it on as many PCs as you like, however you will have to install the OS with a new key for each system.
