  2. D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.
    • Follow the on-screen process to finish formatting the partition.

    Let us know how it goes so that we can further assist you.

  3. Savings Microsoft store games/xbox beta games to D drive

    I recently purchased a new PC around six months ago. it came with a SSD drive and large hard drive. I downloaded several games such as Forza 3 & 4 and Gears 4 & 5. i saved all these games on the D drive with no issues. Unfortunately last week my SSD failed
    and had to be replaced. I had to reinstall windows 10 as my old SSD had the operating system on it. I've had no issues reinstalling all my other games from Steam, Origin, uplay etc onto the hard drive. Microsoft store only lets me download onto the C drive
    (SSD) when trying to download onto the D drive i'm met with a message saying files already exist in that file and need to be deleted. I've tried that and it doesn't work. I've also tried going into storage and changing the setting saying add new apps in d
    drive, this also doesn't work. i'm not sure what to do, and the SSD drive is too small to have more than 2 games installed.

    Thanks

    Installing to a second Drive. D: or external (Non Boot up Drives)

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are looking for an option to move the game location from the C drive to the Drive D, which is an external drive.



    In this scenario, we would suggest you to perform these steps and check if that resolves your issue on both laptop and Desktop.



    1. As usual install the game on the PC’s in
      C Drive.
    2. Insert the external
      D drive
      to the PC.
    3. Press Windows + I key from the keyboard to launch
      Settings.
    4. Select Apps and click on
      Apps & features
      from the left pane.
    5. Search for the installed game from the list on the right pane.
    6. Single click on the game and select
      Move.
    7. Select the D drive under
      Choose a drive
      where you want to move the game.
    8. Restart the PC with the external drive connected and then launch the game.


    We await your response.
