Windows 7: Problem with WMC using to much space on my SSD boot drive

Problem with WMC using to much space on my SSD boot drive

Hi everyone,
I have a problem with WMC using up the limited space on my SSD.
Does anyone know if the default \users\public\Recorded TV\ folder can be redirected to a HDrive on my system other than the SSD?
If not I will be forced to stop using WMC for recording TV programs, and I love using WMC for this purpose because it does it so well

Set recording options in Windows Media Center

  1. Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Center.
  2. On the Windows Media Center start screen, scroll to Tasks, click Settings, click TV, click Recorder, and then click Recorder Storage.
  3. Under Record on drive, click the Plus* or Minus* button to choose a new drive for Media Center to save recorded TV shows to. (If there are no other drives installed in or connected to your computer, these buttons will be unavailable.)
  4. Click Save.


  • If you're not sure how much free space a particular drive has, select the drive, and then check the chart under Total recording time before saving.
  • To limit the amount of hard disk space that Media Center can use for recorded shows, change the Maximum TV limit setting to a lower number.
