Hey!i've come with another question :D ,i want to buy a new ssd [250 gb-2gb/s ]for my windows and pubg[or any high usage game] but i dont know how to install the games only in ssd and not on hdd[1tb].
When i will install my windows again i''ll do it with clean instalation and make 2 partitions.I'll split the memory in half [600gb in C and 600 gb in D]*(if that's posible) but when im gonna install my windows how i can install it on my ssd and also to install a game,after,only in my ssd.

In the end i dont know how to separate (divide) the ssd from hdd before and after installing the widnows !

Disconnect the HDD
Install the OS on the SSD
Later, when it is all running directly from the SSD...

Disk Management, and delete ALL partitions on that drive.
Or, commandline function diskpart, and the clean command.
I suppose you could do it booting from your WIN 10 install USB.

Steam games, this is very easy. You have have Steam libraries on multiple drives.

Steam games location
In the steam client:
Steam
Settings
Downloads
Steam Library Folders
Add library folder


To move an already installed game
Games library
Right click the game
Properties
Local Files
Move Install Folder
