    I own a 15" MacBook Pro late 2011 in which i removed the DVD bay and installed a HDD 750GB and my primary Disk is a SSD 128 GB my question is how can i install software from the App store into the HDD and not the SSD drive which is the default.Thanks.

    Install from the Mac App Store normally. When installed, find the app, and drag it to the desired location, while holding command.
