    Back again, actually Witcher is just another game, so I should have said I look forward to your advice on Computers in the future. I really need it!
    In your system specs, the PC and hardware you have this for a laptop?

    TrashZone, I honestly don't know where you're going here and it's doing nothing but throwing more confusion at the OP's feet. Based on the OP's post, do you really think they're ready to delve deep roots of SSD drives, and now provisioning! On top of that you now introduce Hibernation and pagefiles??? This is seriously moving away from the OP's question....

    Hello. Got this gaming machine with W10 just this week. Very confused, looking back fondly to W7. Anyway, I installed the software I'm used to, Firefox, Thunderbird, plus Malwarebytes. Wanted to make room for game being downloaded. Found out I can't delete Microsoft's stuff I don't want to use. So a game from Steam of 43 Gigas is downloading it's slow way onto my machine. But only 36 Gigas free on the SSD C: drive, which is evidently according to Parameters the place for applications. The SSD drive C: (nor the D: drive) shows no sign of augmenting so I assume what has downloaded so far is being cached somewhere, and not so far on the drive. But when all 43 gigas have arrived, will they try to find room on C:? In other words, what's going to happen? Is there anything I can do?
    I think keeping things simple helps a lot more and severely lessons the confusion. The bottom line is the OP will a) need a larger drive, b) need an additional drive, or c) if additional drive is available, move the games there, or d)forgo the game until the space needed becomes available.

    Filling out some system specs pertaining to hard drive, SSD drive space/usage would be helpful as well.
