  1. Can Apps/Programs be moved between drives?


    Without paying attention, I went and filled my main drive (CCan Apps/Programs be moved between drives? :) before realizing I had a secondary drive that was empty. Is it possible to simply move large apps or programs from one drive to the other or do I need to uninstall/reinstall them?

    :)

  3. How to move installed apps from one drive to another drive in Windows 10?

    Hello,

    As your concern is to move the apps from one drive to another drive, we will help you with this issue.

    I recommend you to try the below steps to move the apps and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings option.
    • Click on System, and on Apps & features to view all installed apps and their installation size.
    • Click on the app entry that you would like to move to a different drive to see
      Move and Uninstall options. Click Move
      button and then select a drive of your choice to move the app.

    NOTE: When you click on a traditional desktop program or an app that came preinstalled with Windows 10, Windows 10 offers only Uninstall option and you can’t move desktop applications using this method.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue for further assistance. We will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.
