Well... Everything is up and running, really love how fast windows loads smile12 Still kinda weird that I had to format the ordinary HDD though.

It was getting to where I was going to PM you! I was dying to know how it all worked out. Not weird at all - if you don't make it a primary partition and format it, it doesn't know what to do with itself! You only have to do it once unless you wipe it down to one and zeros.

Once you get all your stuff to point to the HDD to keep all your data there, it's still a battle to keep junk off your SSD. Windows still puts all kinds of temporary files in your App Data which is a hidden file until you uncheck that option. It also puts other stuff around. I use Slim Cleaner to try to keep the unnecessary stuff off my SSD.

It's possible to put your temporary file folder to a drive other than the C: drive
***Change location of TEMP files***

That's absolutely great, Jenny! I wasn't sure if moving the temp folder was a good idea or not, so just never attempted it. It's definitely a space hog if you don't keep up with it. Thanks!
