    Installation Apps and Data on 2nd Drive


    I have Dell XPS8940 machine with two drives SSD ( C:) and HDD ( D:) with SATA operation and configured in BIOS for
    RAID mode. My OS is Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685 ).
    I wish all new apps and folders: downloads, documents, music, pictures, videos be installed on D: drive not cluttering
    more C: drive (256 GB).
    I enabled through settings>storage> change where new content is saved (D:). Nothing happened.
    How to achieve this task ?

    Hi, there are several threads where this has been discussed.

    E.g.
    Managing SSD and HDD

    My post:
    Managing SSD and HDD

    Note that you cannot fully, meaningfully or usefully install tradiitonal exe/dll programs on a 2nd drive.
    Only fully portable programs can be completely located on a 2nd drive.

    For UWP apps from the Store see:
