I have two internal hard drives in my computer which is great! a ssd and a hdd but for some reason i install all my games and programs such as word and my music and videos on my hdd but some how some files end up going into my main boot drive (c:). i havent installed anything in my 256 gb ssd except for windows 7 64 bit and all my essential drivers such as gpu mobo etc. oh and one game and its taken up 80 gb already. When i went to clean it up i saw some small files from games or other programs i installed on my hdd drive. So my question is why is that happening? and why is my ssd space getting less and less withouit downloading anything? What took up all the space on my ssd worth 80 gb? Thanks

Windows will install some files (such as settings, user profiles, some dlls, etc. files) on C even if you install program on another drive. Locations include User and Documents folders, etc. Mine does the same thing. Although I install the vast majority of programs on another drive, I already use 81GB.
