Default Files/Programs/Installs to HDD

Hi there,

I have just installed my OS onto a 128gb SSD and i want the files/user files to go onto my HDD not my SSD.
Is it possible?
Could you tell me how i go about this?

Thanks

Edit: I just found that you can change location of User stuff e.g My Pictures,Downloads ect ect.

Either that or I try these 2 tricks next time around.
Click documents folder and open, once the window is open and maximized right click on the documents folder.
Click copy and paste to a back up hard drive or etc type storage item.
Music, pictures, documents and others can be copied if you highlight them with your mouse and right click copy and send to the other location.

Any installed programs I recommend you change the install directory by using the programs setup.exe and follow the steps.\

I have a trick I do for this exact thing. I make a fake programX86 foolder on the other drive and just point all my apps and games to this folder. It has been working good for me for years now.
