How to have users and program data on different drive to Windows 7

I have a SSD for my c drive but want to store users data and program data on a different hard drive. Is this a wise thing to do? If so, how do I do it? If not, how do I organise data so I don't run out of space?

I can't remember the exact syntax at the moment, but Windows has an awesome command called "mklink". You can make the computer use a different path for files without messing it up. I would recommend looking for tutorials on how to just move your OS and games to the SSD. Good Luck!

Yeah I think what you're thinking of is called symlinking, and it is what OP needs. It's already a feature in Win7
