This question already has an answer here:

So I'm running a 250 GB SSHD for my windows boot drive and basic system functions. I am running a 1 TB standard HD for my larger files (like the bitcoin ledger). How do I prevent Bitcoin-qt from loading the ledger to my C drive and instead have it load to my D drive?

You can create a bitcoin.conf file that specifies datadir=(your/desired/filepath) in order to override the default data directory location.
