The point of setting my system up like this was specifically to avoid having to install programs to the hard drive manually; you mean copy your program(s) setup files to the data hard drive?
now that I have unsuccessfully
put the program files and my user folder on a partition of the hard drive, I don't have to do that every time. "ProgramData, Program Files and Program Files (x86)" are windows directory(s) and need to stay on the system root and can not be moved
Any programs I want to install
on the SSD (like games) can be installed to
a folder on the SSD from the hard drive manually
, and there are far fewer of those than there are of regular programs and documents.
