  1. Cant change where apps will download to. Wanting to change from c: drive to d: drive


    Bought Forza Horizon 4 and wanting to download it to my d: drive because my c: drive is too full with other files. Every time I try to change it in my settings where I want it to go to I get error code 0x80070005.

    Change program download drive from C to D

    My program default download drive is C, but it has much less storage space on it than my D drive. How can I change the default drive for program downloads to D so as to keep my C drive faster and functioning well.

    Change program download drive from C to D

    Sounds like you have a Hybrid drive but its not being used.

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Disk Management

    Could you take a screenshot then post it in a reply here?

    If the D: drive is larger than C:, I would try partitioning the drive.

    Here is an article how to partition a drive:

    https://www.groovypost.com/howto/create-partiti...

    Name one Partition 'Files' and the other 'Apps'.

    Open the Files partition, create a folder and name it: Maryssa22

    Press Windows key + R

    Type: %userprofile%

    Hit Enter

    Right click your Documents folder

    Click Properties

    Select the Location tab

    Click Move

    Browse to the Files partition we created earlier then select Maryssa22 folder.

    Repeat the same steps for other folders such as Pictures, Videos etc.

    Open Start > Settings > System > Storage

    Under More storage settings, click 'Change where new content is saved'

    In New apps will save to list box, choose the 'Apps' partition we created earlier.

    Open Start > Settings > Apps > Apps & Features

    Select any large app you have downloaded from the Windows Store

    Click Move, choose the 'Apps' partition
