    Files not being saved to new drive even though I selected the option to save to that drive


    So I recently filled up my SSD and now I am trying to use my other drive. I went to settings and then storage then I went to "change where new content is saved" and chose my hard disk. However, when I changed my new incoming files to be located into the hard disk the files try to go to my SSD even though I chose my hard disk. Something that I noticed is that when I change the option to store offline maps there is text at the bottom that pops up and it says that it is now saving new offline maps to the new storage device but it doesn't say that for all of the other options. Here is a screenshot.

    As you can see when I moved maps it says that it moved maps but when I try to change my other things it says nothing. After I did this I tried to download some things and realized that the files that I am downloading are going to my SSD. Can anyone help me with this I would greatly appreciate the help.

    :)

    Cannot save files to network drives anymore

    Hi Brendo,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    • Which account was used to sign in to Office, when the user attempted to save files to the mapped drive?


    This could be due to the incorrect user information used. You may want to try the steps listed below and check if it works for you:

    • Open Word 2016, and navigate to
      File > Account
      .
    • Sign out of all the accounts under User Information.
    • Restart Office, navigate to
      File > Account
      .
    • Sign In to use the work email for user information.
    • Now, try saving the Office documents to the mapped drive.


    If the issue persists, as the issue is related to Server, I suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet
    forums
    , where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on Servers to assist you with this.



    Regards,
