Hi!
I have 2 drives on my computer as they list;
Disk C: (306GB almost used) (HDD)
Disk D: (390GB with 390GB free) (HDD)
I decided to make a thread since my C: disk is almost used with 5.20GB free.
I own 4 games located on Steam* and a couple of programs. I store some memes and a couple of videos, but thats all. I never considered using D: drive and I really am wondering what stuff I should put on what since my storage is going to go full. The question I have today is, what programs, games and etc. should I put on what drive for example; I should put games on whatever drive and programs should stay and blah blah. Every response counts.
Thank you for your time!




* Games list:
Garry's Mod
Stardew Valley
Trove
Unturned (Which I haven't tried playing yet)

Well i would recommend getting an SSD or something, kingstone ssd's are not the greatest but its really good for the value.
Get one use it for OS, then store the rest in the other drivers.

Plus it wont really make that much of a difference, you should always keep space in your C drive incase of a future update from windows, i heard that a 32Gb windows update will be dropping soon or something.

You can install Steam games on that D drive.
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



Videos, pics, music...all that can go on the D drive as well.

Thanks for the info on the Windows update. I'll make sure my C drive is ready. Would've been ruined without ya. I might be getting a new computer soon. ❤
