2 HARD DRIVE configuration / file location set up
I have a Dell M6600 laptop. Win 7 Professional 64bit.
Some bright spark (IT bloke at work) told me to install an 128Gb SSD (as a boot drive for applications C:/) and move the 320Gb HDD into the second sata port (F:/) as a storage drive for the my files.
Which I have done, now EVERY TIME I try and save something from whatever application AutoCAD, Revit, CS5, Office it tries to save the file onto the C:/ and does not allow it to be saved on the F:/, stating that 'someone else is using it and can only be saved as read only'.
I can only assume that its due to the program being open on the C:/ or something!!
It saves fine to an external HDD, why not to the internal??
I have changed the default file locations in all the programs - no good.
I have created new document folders libraries on the F:/ - no good.
I have asked the IT fella at work and get - 'I deal with Macs mainly - it wouldn't happen on Mac' (yer because the software wouldn't run properly in the first place you twat!!!)
How do I set my system up so as the SSD C:/ only boots the programs and that the HDD F:/ acts as my document library?
Any help is much appreciated
