Windows 10: Win10 in SSD, docs, apps and temp files on HDD? Solved

  1.    19 May 2016 #1

    Win10 in SSD, docs, apps and temp files on HDD?

    I have a 128gb SSD and a 1TB HDD.

    When I initially set this up on Windows 7, I had to move the default documents, apps and temp files folders to the HDD.

    I am have upgraded to Win10, but want to do a fresh clean install.

    Do I need to do anything to point not only my documents and apps but temp files to save to the HDD by default?
    I know i can do this in storage settings for apps, docs etc - but what about temp and other files?

    Any suggestions - thanks?

    What I did with my Win10 Tablet is set the Virtual Memory/paging file to 2GB on the 32GB C: drive then on the added 64GB MicroSDXC card set the same to 4GB, gives me more space on C: and better overall performance. The same can be done with an SSD/HDD combination or 2 HDDs.

    Sure, my C is an M.2 drive and only has windows and most apps and my currently most played games, at the moment DooM and Fallout 4.

    I have separate SSD drives along with that for each document need, one for audio stuff, one for video, and then a couple of normal HD's for storage and documents, which are mirrored to USB3 drives.

    All I do is just go to like 'music' shortcut in file manager and make it point to/relocate to whatever drive I want it to go to.

    No problem.

    Also most games I install to E drive...I have only used Steam and Origin for games for a long time now...when I get a new large game I install it to M.2 but later might move it to E.
