HP Pavilion Desktop PC TP01-2000a (2Z6C9AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Hi. My new Pavilion desktop came with a 256gb SSD and 2tb HDD. The SSD is nearly full with system files. An HP tech was telling me I can change the general configuration so It's easier to transfer files from my old computer to the HDD but keep the SSD for the OS, etc. He said the instructions are in the HP Knowledge Base but I can't find them.  I'd appreciate any guidance.

You can set 2TB drive as default locations for many users files/data. Please use the following Guide

 

              https://pureinfotech.com/change-default-save-locations-windows-11/

              https://winbuzzer.com/2022/01/05/how-to-change-download-location-and-default-save-location-on-window...

 

After that, you can move all existing files (such as photos, videos, documents ...) to suitable new locations.

 

Regards.
