    Can't select HDD to install apps from the Microsoft Store


    Hi - I recently purchased a Razer Blade Stealth with a 256GB HD for gaming and a bit of work. I also bought a Samsung SSD T5 external hard drive to store my games because I have limited space on my HD. I purchased Gears of War 5 from the Microsoft store and went to install it but unfortunately, it only will install on my C: drive. In my Settings > Storage > Apps, I chose the external Samsung SSD but when I go to download GOW5 in the Microsoft store it only offers me the C: Drive. Is there any workaround to get it on my external HD instead of my C: Drive? If it is only C: Drive then I will likely not be able to hold more than a single game on my computer because I also have files. I appreciate the help!

    :)

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand the difficulties you are facing while selecting the drive to install the game. We have seen situations where certain games do not provide option to install in External drives and certain games do. In order to get clarity
    and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    • What is the Windows 10 version and Build installed? (Type winver in Windows search/Run command)
    • What is the make and model of the PC?
    • Is D drive an external or an internal HDD?
    • Which is the game you are trying to install?
    We have reproduced the issue on our lab machine for two games, one takes the external E drive and the other game doesn’t, as you can see the screenshots below.
