Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

    I have 4 hard drives in my build, is there a way I can make separate libraries for each hard drive. Meaning the libraries category you see in the quick launch or task bar. I would love to have the full library for each hard drive.

    Thank you,

    Hello Dave, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you sure could. Here's how for each library:

    1) Add a drive to a library.

    2) Set the drive as the default and/or public save location.

    Hope this helps,

I am unable to get my libraries that I create in Windows 8 (on the desktop) to show all the files in the folders themselves. In Windows 7 there was a dropdown menu that allowed you to arrange the library by file or folder. This is missing in Windows 8 best I can tell. I have gone through every...

Specify libraries as being on a different drive?
Is there any way to make Win8 apps that rely on libraries (music, pics, vids) work with content stored on a separate physical drive? I NEVER use the libraries contained in the OS's user profiles. I always keep all data content on a separate physical HDD. I tried to add my Photos library on my...
