    question destination folders for hdd on new computer?

    hope this the the right spot for this question:
    new computer 2 drives ssd, and hdd i am new to this concept
    wondering how to set up folders for the hdd to accept files as it is virtually blank. everything is on the ssd 250gb.

    i would like to save space on ssd for music recordings etc so i would like to put itunes, and other games i may play once a while, and other not necessary programs on the hdd.

    so do i go about that, do i need to create destination folders for those? any parameters as to what they can and cannot be named?

    thank you in advance

    Your strategy is wrong.

    Use ssd for OS+programs, use hdd for data as programs get best benefit on sdd, data does not make any difference.

    To create folders on hdd, simply use file explorer in normal way.
