Windows 7: New Build, Help with SSD OS, and HDD Data files

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
New Build, Help with SSD OS, and HDD Data files

Hi everyone,

so yesterday i recently built a new computer, Windows 7 Ultimate, i7, the works basically.

I bought an 80Gb SSD for OS and programs, and a 1TB for all my files.

Question is, how do i make everything default save to my 1TB drive. Obviously all "My Documents" and the "Public" folders are on the SSD with the OS install. How do i transfer all of that over to the 1TB and make sure all Word documents and so on save onto the 1TB drive?

All this while making sure all new programs are installed onto the SSD.

Many thanks
