  1. Microsoft Store Games Crash When Installed On SSD


    Hi!


    Thanks for reading.

    When I install any Microsoft Store game on my SSD the games crash. I've tried Sea Of Thieves and Forza Horizon 4.

    Both go to a black screen and shut down. Other games (Origin, Steam, etc work all the time).

    Besides that, when i download them on my hdd and try to move them to my ssd, the games also crash or my computer crashes while moving the games.


    Does anyone have any idea what's going wrong here?


    My system:

    Intel Core i7 - 4770K

    16GB ram

    Samsung SSD 860 QVO 1TB

    1060 GTX 6gb

    :)

    microsoft store install on external SSD

    I spent some time with Microsoft support this morning. They told me that they think it is something to do with the SSD not allowing installation from the store. They suggested resetting and then an in-place reset. I'm awaiting the email with instructions.

    If you don't mind, what legacy games from the store do you have on your SSD? I'm having an issue with ReCore as well and curious if you have that game and it's running.

  3. 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.
