    Advice sought on uploading data to HDD instead of SSD...


    I've just bought a new laptop that has both an SSD (256 Gb) and an HDD (1Tb). The first thing I did was to set up my internet connection, and I then installed all my old programs. I now want to upload all of my data (documents, music, videos, photos etc.) that I have saved onto an external hard drive.

    I would now like to put all data onto the HDD and Windows (and other programs) onto the SSD, and then make sure that all new documents, music and photos get automatically saved onto the HDD. I know how to carry out the second task, but I'm not sure how to put existing data onto the SSD, especially since I am not transferring it. If I place my music, documents and photos into the already existing folders in File Explorer, I am sure that they will go onto the SSD. And I'm not sure how the Windows User profile will have to be modified, if at all.

    Can someone offer some advice? Many thanks.

    (Windows 10 version 1903)

    :)

    SSD advice

    Hello,

    The Samsung EVO series would always be my first suggestion for an SSD, so good choice IMO. In terms of upgrading, I would keep the HDD for extra storage in the system, especially for something like video files. One piece of advice I would give is consider and look around for options concerning transferring your data from the HDD to the SSD.

    SSD and HDD

    I have a SSD and an internal HDD. I want my docs , scans, pitctures to automatically save to my HDD instead of dragging it later. Or rather I should have the choice of saving it to my SSD or HDD
