How to direct data to HD and not SSD when transferring with EaseUA PCtrans

I am in the process of transferring all the apps, data, programs from my old computer to my new computer (Pavilion Desktop 595-p0084). I am using EaseUS PCtrans to transfer. What I need to do is transfer all this to the "D" drive (1Tb HD) and NOT

It's been a while since I used EaseUS, but from what I recall, it will not let you do what you want to do -- transfer Windows stuff to a drive other than where Windows is installed.  And the main reason, is if it DID allow that, you would end up with two versions of Windows system files and libraries -- and that would corrupt the OS big time.

 

With issues like this, it is always best to hunt down the support forum for the software you are using.  There, you will find folks that use this software and can provide detailed advice and assistance.

I did clone my "C" drive, but have now found another problem. lol  I cannot find the SSD in the HP pavilion 595-P0084. I need to replace the smaller 128Gb SSD with my 500Gb SSD. (or at least wire it in place of the smaller SSD). No luck so far. Need more info on the motherboard wiring etc.

Thanks for the response.
