    I installed a game from the Microsoft Store, tried to transfer it to another hard drive,...


    I downloaded Sea Of Thieves onto my secondary hard drive and it was running really slow. So I made space on my SSD and tried to transfer it over using the Move command in the Settings panel.. My computer crashed half way through the transfer and now I can't resume the transfer or uninstall the game.


    The Microsoft Store still thinks the game is still installed, but under the Apps & Featured menu there is a blank application that is the same size as the game but it won't uninstall...


    Is there any way to hunt down the files and delete them manually? I have tried some 3rd party uninstall programs but none of them register the program as installed.


    I think the program is eating up 40 gigs of space on both of my HDs and I want to play it.


    When I click on the item in the Start Menu it gives me this error: We’re updating ms-resource:AppNameShippingClient. It should be ready to use again shortly.

    :)

  2. Install Microsoft Store Game In Specific Folder

    Hi,

    I understand that you want to organize your Windows 10 storage location. However, the feature you're looking for is currently not possible. We suggest sending feedback to Microsoft using Feedback Hub app. You can visit this
    article to know more details about it.

    Moreover, you could always choose a preferred location from the Store settings, or move installed content to a different drive. In case you have the OS installed on an SSD and have a dedicated drive for games, the feature will make it more convenient to
    download games to a dedicated drive before initiating the download.

    You can follow the steps below on how to install Windows Store apps on a separate drive:

    1. Open Settings.
    2. Click on System.
    3. Click on Storage.
    4. Under "Save locations," and on "New apps will save to," select the new drive location.

    Once you completed the steps, new apps you download from the Windows Store will now install automatically in the new location.

    If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Stored files in Hard Drive

    I'd like to know if there's a way of listing all the files stored in my hardware and arrange them by size, because I want to keep track of what's on my hard drive. Thanks, I hope you answer.
