Hi guys, i dunno if that is already solved in this forum, i coulndt find a solution yet.

 

So i habe a 250Gb 860 evo and a 2tb hdd and i want to only have windows (and maybe a few programms)  on the SSD and i want all the programms and so on on the HDD but i dont want to do that every single time, i want it so that it automaticly (if not told to install on ssd) installs everything on the HDD , how can i do that?

 

First im sorry for my relativly bad english and second im looking forwars that you guys can help me.

Open regedit (Start > Run > "regedit"). Then find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion". Now look in the right pane. Change "ProgramFilesDir", "ProgramFilesPath", "ProgramW6432Dir" and "ProgramFilesDir (x86)". If your secondary drive letter is D:\, then change them to "D:\Program Files", "D:\Program Files", "D:\Program Files" and "D:\Program Files (x86)", in that order that I just mentionned. You should be good to go from here.

Then what's the point of having an SSD then if you don't put programs on it...

Buying an SSD for slightly faster OS boot times is a complete waste of money.

Then restart and install right?

 

Cause i already did something like that and it didnt work, do i have to first make new folder ond the HDD or will it just create them by itself?

 

But ty anyways for the clear instruction and respond.

Probably, just try it out and see what happens.
