    Issue w/ program startup on separate drive

    I have my OS installation on a SSD and install all programs that don't need the benefits of the SSD on HDD. I've run into the issue where certain programs on the HDD don't run at startup. Looking for some assistance on fixing and avoiding this.

    Were these programs installed on the second drive originally or was the second drive originally the OS drive and the programs installed at that time?

    The programs were initially installed on the 2nd drive.

    Using two fresh drives that never had anything written to them prior to this. Installed windows to the SSD and have been installing all non-important programs to the 2nd drive from the get-go.
