Windows 7 64bit Home Edition
Changing where files automatically seperate to...

Hey guys, just wondering ...

My laptop has a divide, one for the operating system which is about 60gb and another part of the hardrive called data... its got nothing in it and ive installed and downloaded a couple of games from steam that are saving into the operating system hard drive.

I was just wondering, how do you change it so stuff automatically saves to the Data section rather than the OS section..

Thanks ! :)
