Jump to solution

I just got a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Laptop Computer 2019, 15.6 inch FHD Touchscreen Notebook, Intel Core i3-8130U 2.2Ghz, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD.  All of the programs came loaded on the SSD and the HDD was empty.  What is the recommended way to use these drives?  Programs, etc. on on and user data (docs, photos, etc.) on the other.  Looking for asdvice as this is a new on on me.

Welcome to the Dell Community,

Set the 1TB HDD as default storage drive.

What ever you choose to store on the HDD move the folder to the new storage device.

Use the SSD for boot and apps only.
