I currently have one 2 tb HD and a 120G SSD for windows, can I set these two up in a raid or something because every time I save, it goes to my SSD and I have to manually put stuff in the HD. Is there a way to have them linked up or set up a program to make it easier. Thanks

You do not want to do that. RAID 0 or 1 is limited to the size of the smallest, and the speed of the slowest. You be crippling both drives.

See this tutorial for having stuff save elsewhere by default.

You could, but its a really bad idea. I don't think that you completely understand about RAID.
There are options in just about all apps, programs, browsers, to set defaults of where you want to save files. I have basically the same drive setup as you and all my downloads and saved files are set to go into a specified folder on my 1TB hard drive.

Read the above linked tutorial.
And for specific applications, look in the menu settings. Maybe something under "Preferences" or "Options".
