  1. I built my first computer yesterday and purchased an SSD and a 1TB hard drive. I installed windows 8 on the ssd and I want to have all future installs and whatnot go automatically to my larger drive. However, at the moment my ssd is my (C:) drive and everything gets installed there. yes I know I get the option of where I want to install things but that gets annoying!

    So, how do I make my second (larger) hard drive the place where everything is installed there automatically?
