    How do i change where the Anniversary Update files go?


    Hello, TenForums, I'm new here, I'm pretty sure you guys are tired of posts like there but I'm having some trouble updating to build 1607. I'm on Threshold 1511 (November 2015 Update) on my Laptop and I was getting really impatient about the Anniversary Update so I downloaded the Updater and started the update. I discovered that the Update Files go to my Recovery Partition that came with the Laptop and it was almost full

    During Update

    A few minutes later I get this message:

    Then, I found out that the update filled up my Recovery Partition

    Is there any way I could move the update files to C: instead of the Recovery Partition?
    Thank you for any support *Smile

  2. In Groove music, how do I change where files are downloaded after I purchase them in the store?

    I buy songs from the Microsoft store, and they are downloaded to my local drive, but I want to change it to download to my OneDrive music folder. How do I do that?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    From the above description, I understand that you want to change the location of the downloaded
    music folder to OneDrive music folder.

    It is not possible to change the location of one particular folder but you can change the location of all downloads, if you do so any downloads will go to OneDrive.

    Follow the below steps.

    - Open File Explorer.

    - Right-click the folder that you want to redirect (Downloads), and then click
    Properties.

    - Click the Location tab, and then click
    Move.

    - Browse to the location where you want to redirect this folder. You can select another location on this computer, another drive attached to this computer, or another computer on the network. To find a network location, type two backslashes (\\)
    into the address bar followed by the name of the location where you want to redirect the folder (for example, \\mylaptop), and then press Enter.

    - Click the folder where you want to store the files, click
    Select Folder, and then click OK.

    - In the dialog that appears, click Yes to move all the files to the new location.



    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.

    Regards,

    Is your system disk completely allocated to partitions with no spare space? I think you need at least 450Mb free for a new Recovery partition to be created.

    Some odd partition sizes there (your first 2 recovery partitions).
    You have plenty of free space on C:
    I guess your comment
    "I discovered that the Update Files go to my Recovery Partition" refers to the OEM partition. I see what you mean now- the media creation tool is writing to that. Sorry, made an assumption before.

    So what I suggest is that you download the iso directly
    Windows 10 ISO
    (& see Tutorial section). Just make sure you choose the right one.

    You can burn a DVD, create a bootable USB drive with Rufus (free tool) or mount the iso.
