Storage and Drives Question

HP 750-424
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My C Drive is nearly full (10Gb) and I have optimized as much space as possible. I have to download a new program that will not fit, however my D Drive has 800 Gb of free space. Am I able to create Program files on the D Drive and if so, how do I accomplish that? Thank you!

@D-Man1 

 

Your machine has dual storage: 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD. The faster SSD is for System and Application (app) files and the slower HDD is for Data.

 

Some (not all) apps allow you to store app files on other drive than C: you can select during installation process BUT you can always store user files on other drive (in your case D:) Please use the following instructions
