I have a Acer Es 14, with a HD of only 28gb.
  • Bought an SSD 100gb Cloned the old HD.
  • Through Bios Im using the new SSD to boot.
  • Both HD's have the Same folders....
  • I already used Regedit to change de program folders all to the new location D:
  • Already configure in storage (programs, pics, music, apps) to install on D:
  • But When I download a new app like Adobe cloud or trying to upgrade windows 10, it keeps using the old HD C:.
Any tips?

Thanks

If there's an active BOOT partition in HDD, windows and programs may get confused as to which drive to update/download.

So I was doing some research and the original HD is a 28 GB samsung bjnb4r. And is welded into the motherboard.
I was trying to unplugged but couldnt find it, and researching I found that...

So maybe Ill try to disable it or inactivated?

For multiple reasons, this will not work.

  1. You can't remove the surface mounted 32GB (28GB) drive.
  2. It WILL continue to boot from that
  3. Reg edits to force the program files thing to be elsewhere WILL break multiple things
  4. Some thing will install to the C drive no matter what you do
