I recently acquired a "new" desktop, and failed to realize the smaller SSD was C: with my program files, as well what I can only assume to be my windows and boot drive. I've since maxed it out with little to nothing on my other 2TB HDD.
I would much rather the 2TB be defaulted for downloaded and my C drive is possible, but doing so without breaking windows is what I'm worried about.
alternatively, I know I could uninstall/reinstall most of my programs over to the other drive, but I would still be left with the SDD being defaulted and constantly having to adjust the path of new downloads.
I found this site which would move program files and then I can rename my drives to swap them around, along with changing the registry. But will I need to move other window files too? Is this non advisable? Tip? Other routes? Any help on the issue will be greatly appreciated!
tl:dr: I would LOVE for my HDD to become my C: drive and not break windows in the process
