I had my Windows 7 PC setup with Windows installed on what was then my C Drive. I installed a SSD as my Master and configured Windows 7 to save to Libraries on my old C drive, now called D.
My SSD is 120 GB but currently has only 12 GB free. I install most of my programs to D rather than the SSD but in the interest of speed, some were installed to the SSD. Current SSD Usage:
MOSCache - 594 MB
PerfLogs - 0
Program Files - 2.94 GB
Program Files (x86) - 8 GB
ProgramData - 6.64 GB
Users - 34.4 GB
Windows - 22.5 GB
I believe the only one I can really make changes to and the one with the most usage is Users. AppData is 28 GB and continues to grow.
Can I move this to another drive? Is that advisable because I have read differing opinions? Any other thoughts on reducing it's size? I don't really want to buy an even larger SSD as I think the root problem still exists and AppData will continue to grow.
When I added the SSD, I did an clean install of Windows 7 onto the SSD and kept my old copy of Windows 7 on my old C drive, now D. Since my 2 TB D drive is currently at 220 GB free, deleting my old version of my Windows 7 frees up additional space. Should I be safe in doing that?
My PC periodically, after being on for several hours, turns itself off and BIOS is reset to boot to the D Drive instead of the SSD C Drive. I have to turn it off, access BIOS and tell it the primary boot drive is the SSD. Why would this be happening?
Firefox downloads to a download folder on the SSD, How can I have it download to the Downloads folder on my D Drive?
So there you have my burning questions of the day. I would appreciate any help you can provide.
