    Hi,

    I just got a new pc for my wife with two (2) 256GB Program SSD's,
    two (2) 1-TB Data SSD's all done up in a RAID config and Windows 7 Pro.

    Her old Win10 pc has one (1) 256GB SSD Program drive and
    one (1) 1-TB HDD Data drive.

    I successfully backed up her desktop and data from the old Win10 pc
    onto a flash drive & then restored the desktop from the old Win10 pc to the
    Desktop folder in Windows Explorer of her new Win7 pc by going to
    Windows Explorer > Desktop and pasting the contents of the Win10 pc's Desktop.

    I did the same thing for the contents of the Win10 Data drive, pasting the contents
    of the Data into the 1-TB SSD (D) drive folder of the new Windows 7 pc.

    Now the problem: my wife likes to keep everything on her desktop. This
    eventually lead to the Win10 256GB Program drive getting used up.

    The old Win10 pc had a trick done by someone not available anymore.

    He was able, somehow, to (I think) essentially make the entire desktop
    (or maybe each icon on it, as well as all future items) a shortcut to
    something on the 1-TB Data D-drive. This freed-up the 256GB SSD
    Program drive for programs, only.

    Now I need to do the same thing on her new Win7 pc, but I don't know how.

    I'm not a real techie, so if someone does know about this, please reply with
    exact, detailed, instructions.

    Thanks so much!

    Many programs ask in which directory the program data should be stored.
    In addition, many programs ask whether they should create a shortcut to the desktop.
    That'll probably be the trick.
