Okay, here's the deal. I have recently procured a new system after my aging laptop struggled so hard with a game beta I am in. And being slightly above the average age of the average Gaian, I find myself flailing around with technology more and more often. So I figured I'd come to where there are plenty of young computer geeks who probably know more about this than I do.


So I got this nice system (specs below), but it has two drives. Not partitioned mind you, but a 64 GB SSD (C: ), and a 2 TB HDD (D: ).

My issue is with the installing of all my game software. I direct it to install onto my D: drive, and it then proceeds to extract everything to my C: drive anyways. crying

Now the question. How do I get my programs to only install on the D: drive?

Please help an old man play his games in hi-def. Please? redface

You could try this and see if that eases your woes.
Normally when people do two hard drive systems, they chain them together into a RAID setup. Look into that, that might be the problem.

Phew!

Good news: all is now well.

Bad news: I am still a massive doofus.

After I talked the steps outloud to a friend of mine as we went over the issue, I suddenly realized that I had been missing the custom option on some of my installers. Thus, why they were defaulting to C:, sooooo, doh.

Many thanks for the advice though.

The option I gave you could prevent you from needing to manually change that setting each time you install something...just FYI.
