Dave Turner wants to move his Documents, Pictures, and other libraries off of his small SSD and onto a larger hard drive.
I strongly recommend that users put code (Windows and programs) onto one drive or partition, and data (documents, spreadsheets, music, photos, and so on) on another. It adds a layer of protection, and it makes backing up easier. You can create an image backup of your bootable code partition—almost certainly drive C:—two or three times a year. And then you can conventionally back up your data partition—let’s call it drive X:—daily.

This is an especially good idea if you have a small SSD and a large hard drive. Using the SSD as C: and the hard drive as X:, your PC will gain considerable speed without losing cheap storage space.
