    Win 8.1 / Win 10 Program Files on another drive


    Hello,

    Since a few weeks i have a new pc with 256GB SSD and 1TB hdd.
    My windows is installed on the ssd.
    My problem is that my ssd becomes in a few days full when i install all my programs.
    I tried several ways to get my programs to another drive.
    But every time i get blocked by windows that another user is owning the folder.

    What i tried is moving program files and program files x86 to my hdd and make a symlink from my ssd to my hdd.
    But i can't move all programs from ssd to my hdd.

    Has anyone have a advise for my to solve this program?

    Greetings,

    Harm

    One way that I can think of is uninstall the program and re-install it but this time, specify the install location to the hdd instead of the default one (most programs allow you to do that). Pick the largest program first and repeat until you are satisfied with the space on the ssd.
