I recently had to do a clean reinstall of my OS and took the opportunity to get my first solid state drive. The plan is to have my OS and programs on the SSD, and all my files on the mechanical drive. Unfortunately when the OS was installed it placed the Users folder on the SSD by default; I was expecting to be able to put it on the other drive. My research suggests it's not simple to just move that to another drive, so I probably need another solution.
My question is how do people usually set up hard drives such that OS is on one and files on the other? I just want to have all my files in the one place, and for the OS, libraries, programs, etc, to be able to find them ok without me having to manually tell it where to go every time. Is there a way to make it so that every time a program/etc tried to open the C:/Users/MyAccount folder it would automatically open the E:/Users/MyAccount folder? Or is there an easier/better way to do this?
