During an installation of a program, you're mostly asked to select a directory where is has to be installed. Default is says a dir on my C drive, which is an SSD with my OS running on it. Now I change this to the D drive. My program will be installed on the D drive but it will still use space on my C drive, so now the question. Ho do you fully install a program on an other drive?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

During your installation, after you make the change from C to D, it should confirm the address before the installation.  If it does not, then you need to go back and try just going into the path and change the letter instead of the entire path.  If the folder has never been created, it should come back and let you know this and ask for permission to create it.  This ensures that you have pointed it to another hard drive.

Now, a simple question.  Isn’t your D drive your DVD/CD drive?  That is normally the default drive.  Check it out in My Computer and make sure that your second hard drive is D and not E.

    I think you don't really understand what I mean. Here is an example.
    I just installed Microsoft Visual Studio on my PC, especially on my D drive, i've chosen for this during the setup. After the installation I went to my computer and I saw that my C drive has lost 4 GB while it was installed on my D drive. What files are still installed on my C drive then?

    PS: My DVD/CD drive has letter E.
