Setting up HDD for SSD temp and User data

Now I have looked through the tutorials for SSD related functions and I am not sure how I should set up a brand new 500GB HDD to transfer my User and temp files from the SSD to it..

I just want to get it right as I have just had some major issues with using th SSD - problem solved and I don't want to go wrecking my system by doing the wrong thing.

In DISKPART I have my SSD an external (in for imaging) and the new HDD listed.

Could someone kindly point me in the right direction of the tutorial I need to set up the HDD please?

This is what I do. User Folders - Change Default Location I move the user files, make sure the SSD is aligned, make sure Windows turned off Defrag, disable hibernate and not much more.

To disable Hibernate, in an elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h off and press enter. It will look like it did nothing but it did.

To make sure trim is enabled in the elevated command prompt type (copy/paste)

fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify and press enter if it returns DisableDeleteNotify = 0 then trim is enabled.

Thanks mate yep have all those done I just wasn't sure of where to find the transfer bits. I had a look through the tutorials but just couldn't find the exact I wanted.
