I have just bought my new Lenovo Ideapad Y580 which has a 32 GB SSD (drive C:) and a 750 GB Hard disk (drive D:). Windows 7 came installed on the SSD (drive C:) of course. I started making installation on MS Office and some other programs and very soon the space on drive C: finished. Then I de-installed some programs and carefully re-installed them on drive D: to save space on the SSD. But however careful I am, some programs do not ask me where to be installed and are being installed on drive C. I am afraid that quite soon the SSD space will be occupied again.
Is there a simple solution on that? All the threads I have read are mentioning manipulation of the register in order to move default path of 'Program Files' on D: but this seems to me for advanced users and also brings risks. Since the SSD technology is becoming more widespread, I suppose there must be a standard solution for that.
For the moment this small SSD brings me more worries than advantages. If it was a disk partition, I would format all, re-install Windows 7 and at the same time make a bigger partition for C: device but this is not the case.
