    I've seen that some people say it is an access problem but I don't think I have that since I have full control of all my drive. I have tried many methods as well.

  2. No permission to save to D:\ drive

    Hi Charlotte,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    • Have you mapped the libraries to the D: drive?
    • Is the issue specific to the subfolder in D: drive?

    Try the below methods and check if this helps.

    Method 1: Creating New File In D: Drive.

    1. Go to D: drive > Right-click on an empty space in D: drive > Click on
      New > Click Text Document.
    2. Give a name to the Text Document and save it and check if you get the same error.

    If you don't get any error while saving the file in D: drive and you get this error message only while saving a document in D:\charl\Documents, then follow
    Method 2 to take the ownership of Documents folder, else follow
    Method 3
    .

    Method 2: Taking Ownership Of A Particular Folder.

    1. Click on Start Menu > Search for Command Prompt >
      Right-click on Command Prompt > Click on Run As Administrator.
    2. Once the Command Prompt is up and running, type the following commands and hit
      Enter after each command.

    takeown /f <foldername> /r /d y

    icacls <foldername> /grant administrators:F /T

    Note: Replace foldername with the path of the folder.

    3. Once the above commands are executed successfully,
    restart the computer once, and check if you are able to save the documents in that folder.

    Method 3: Check If You Are The Administrator From Netplwiz.

    1. Click on the Start menu > Search for Netplwiz > Hit
      Enter.
    2. Click on your user name and click on Properties.
    3. Go to Group Membership tab and choose Administrator > Click on
      Apply > OK.
    4. Once you change this setting, restart the computer once and check for the issue.

    Method 3: Disabling Antivirus.

    If you have installed any third-party security software, I suggest you to temporarily disable them, restart the computer once, and check for the issue.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other
    software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Give it a shot and let us know of any changes.

    Hope it helps.

  3. Windows 10 Store App Save Location

    Hi Lyle,

    The C drive is the default location of every application that you downloaded. D drive is your recovery partition in which you're unable to save an applications from Windows Store and this can result to error 0x80073cf9.

    We highly suggest that you leave it as it is in C drive. We'd like to ask did you create a multiple partition? Please take note that application from Microsoft Store
    won’t move apps that you’ve already installed, although you could uninstall and then reinstall them after making the change to have them save to the new location.

    Should you need further assistance, please let us know.

  4. Tried many methods still cannot get the microsoft store save location changed to D drive.

    Microsoft Store won't let me save to my download drive

    If I choose my C: drive as the save location installs work just fine. I click install and things install. However, my C: drive is an SSD with limited space. I chose my G: drive (where I usually install applications) as the save location. When I click install
    in Microsoft Store it asks me to choose an installation location (Why isn't this available when C: is the save location?). The problem is that the G: drive, my save location, is not available on the list.

    I have tried setting other drives as the save location and the Microsoft store will just save there. There is no indication why the Microsoft Store does not like my G: drive. There is plenty of free space and the drive is the exact same model as other drives
    in my PC that work without trouble.
