Switch primary hard drives

  1. Hey guys, first post here! :D

    anyway, i have a laptop with 2 storage spaces in it, a C: drive (which has my OS and core files on it, which is 60Gigs) and my E: drive (music, movies, etc.200Gigs)

    so my OS drive is only 60Gigs, and whenever i download a program or anything, it automatically wants to go straight to my C: drive.
    This is quite annoying because i always have to go into custom install for everything, and make it go into my E: drive (which contains my games, music, etc.)
    and sometimes i cant even choose to install the program to my E: drive instead of my C: drive.

    it probably doesn't sound like such a problem, but i do alot of downloading and installing of many different programs, and this whole custom install crap is getting on my nerves, because my 60 gigs of storage meant for my OS and core files, is getting filled up with the crap i want on my E: drive.

    so anyway, just wondering if there was a way to switch the save/download/install whatever priority of the hard drives?
