Newbe? New build Need help to set up SSD And storage HDD.

After some years away from building I finally built a new box.
In need of help Installing win 7/64 on SSD and linking HDD for larger Programs.
Have read that some use robocopy to link drives to each other.
does anyone have a post on how I can get this done ?
My main reason for this is to keep all the storage of larger files on the large HDD.

Thanks to all in advance..

hi hardwire... welcome to the windows 7 forums.

install the OS on your SSD (NICE!!) and see how much space you have. can i ask the capacity of the SSD? windows 7 usually takes 20gb.

i run my os on my desktop and load all my games etc to the second HDD.

all you need to do is point the file installation in the direction of the HDD when installing your programs. I dont' think theres any need to link them up.

as long as your computer knows where to look it shouldnt be an issue?

both drives will show under my computer if installed correctly using SATA connections.
