How do I set up a Win7 System with a SSD boot drive but with all USER,DATA,& PROGRAMS (INCL. GAMES) "AUTOMATICALLY" installing to, and run from, an internal SATA HARD DRIVE... that preferably is labeled "C" drive ------ or, get as close to that as possible?!

Why would the SATA drive need to be labeled C? You can't do that. You can use a second hard drive for all your programs and files. You just need to change the path when installing, copying, downloading, etc.

Once you change the path to download or save files that will become the default path. When installing programs you select the advanced feature at the beginning and change ONLY the drive letter, using the remainder of the default path.

Exceptions to the installation on D would be Windows updates, your AntiVirus software and possibly malware software. Items that are updated weekly.

Then perform backups on C & D separately. The reason being the interval will be different for each of them.

If you insist on trying to automate that process then look at the links below.

Keep in mind that everything will then install to D.
