  2. Windows 10 fresh install with OS on SSD and C:\Users on HDD using DISKPART?

    I would like to perform a clean installation of Windows 10 on my machine which has a 240GB SSD and 1TB HDD. I understand two of the more popular options to move Users content to the HDD - either within the OS using the Libraries, or using junction points
    - but I would like to take it a step further and mount the HDD as C:\Users either before installation or post-installation.

    Is this a supported configuration by Microsoft? If so are there any specific instructions in doing so?

    If not, I understand it's still possible by opening a command prompt during installation and using DISKPART to configure the two drives, but if it's not supported I'd like to know what troubles I may be running into as a result. For example, Windows boot
    will look for the Users folder before it's mounted by the OS.

    Basically I want just one drive - C: - to show up in the OS and have the fact that a 1TB HDD is backing the Users folder be transparent.

  3. how to move documents pictures etc folders from C: OS ssd to D: data hdd

    If it is a new Internal or external drive, you have to format it first. If it has been formatted then skip this step.

    If Internal or external drive, plug in or just go to THIS PC and right click on the drive and select Quick Format NTFS

    Restart PC.

    Now just select what you want on C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME or C:\Users\Public or if you stashed some more elsewhere on C:\, and right click on it and select copy, and then go to D:\ location where you want it and select paste. (Or select Cut and then Paste
    - to Move). That is it. You can select multiple folders and copy or move them all at the same time.

    OR

    Go here

    Settings>>System>>>Storage for SSD storage transfer to HDD

    And send your main personal user folders to D:\ Network location/external drive to store them and have your personal folders still listed on C:\ as the shortcut to store them on D:\, so you do not have to go to D:\ to actually access them and so programs
    and the system does not become corrupt or have problems accessing a folder.

  4. How do I move 'Users" folder from C (SSD) to F (HDD) drive?

    Size of Users folder contained in C drive exceeded 2.5TB instead of having a 1TB HDD and 128GB SSD.

    I have an SSD of 128gb which was almost full when I looked up inside the folders to clean up the drive, I found that the size of the Users folder contained in C drive exceeded 2.5TB and was still counting. The point to note is that I have a 1TB HDD with
    128GB SSD only. How can this be possible?

    Can anybody help me with this issue?

    PFB the attached screenshot.
