    D drive installations instead of C drive


    During installations of any of my apps I always try to install them on my D drive. (Not MS Store apps, I can't stand that drivel.) I notice that certain apps absolutely refuse to offer any alternative installation location besides the C drive (system drive). No such dialogue comes up before installing. I hate that. I want to beat it with a stick.

    I want my C drive (256GB Toshiba NVMe) to be pure as the wind-driven snow. I'm not picky, I'm just fussy. I don't mind so much when apps install mostly on the D drive but leave a bit of whatever on the C drive, like Common Files & such. But Some apps just dump the whole kit and kaboodle on the C drive.

    Is there a way to install those particular apps directly to my D drive without getting extremely Registry/rocket science intense?

    :)

    Windows drive labeled ad D: instead of C:

    That doesn't work very well, some software/drivers will NOT install to any drive but the C drive because the person who compiled them was an idiot *Smile D drive installations instead of C drive :)

    Can I update my phone on my D drive instead of my C drive?

    Can I update my phone on my D drive instead of my C drive? I have no room on C, more than enough on D.

    No C: but D: drive has all the data

    Hi Austin,

    To help you with your concern regarding the data on the drive C:, you're seeing the drive "C:" as the drive "D:" because you're booting your computer outside Windows. When booting your computer outside Windows, the system is reading the recovery partition
    as drive C: and the data in the drive C: \ are listed on the drive D: \. Try to boot your computer and try to check again the data in the drive C: \ and see if the data are listed.

    Regards.
