    Installing programs on a different drive question


    Hey guys!

    Now that I have a new laptop that has a 250Gb SSD and a 1T regular drive, I want to reinstall the software that I have in my old laptop and I don't want to install all of it on the SSD. How do I get the software on the larger drive? Thanks.

    :)

  3. Clean Install: Programs On A Different HardDrive

    Yeah I just used the clean install from the Microsoft site and went through the steps.

    I guess since the programs are on a different drive it doesn't know they're there or something.
