HP ENVY - 17m-ae

I have no idea how to solve this problem. I tried to download a file and it stopped because error not enough room even though I have 917 gb available on hdd my ssd is almost full so assume it has been set up to download onto my ssd . How do I rectify this problem. I am in my 70's so please use terms I might understand lol.

@peeza 

 

Normal practice is to use SSD for system and applications/programs only and store user data/files including downloaded file on other drive.

 

To do that, you simply set other drive as DEFAULT download location (or drive). Please use the following instructions
