Jun 29, 2010
  1. i have two hard drives in my laptop, one is a ssd 30gb, the other is 500gb.
    how can i redriect windows 7 functions from the ssd (boot) to the larger drive ?
    I have installed some programs on the second drive but im looking to find out if
    their is some hidden function to use the 500gb for everything other than booting.
    by the way this machine boots in 8 seconds flat.
    thanks doug

    which functions do u want to move to the 500gb hard drive??

    u can move the pagefile(virtual memory) to the 500gb drive by going to PROPERTIES of COMPUTER, >advanced system settings > Settings (under performance) > Advanced TAB > Change...from here u can disable pagefile on the SSD and set it to the 500gb hard drive... u shuold really do this, as i heard that having pagefile on an SSD =reduces its life
