    We couldn't set your default save location 0x80070005


    Hello, I would like to set the default save location for Store apps to another drive D:. When I go into Storage in Settings, I get the "Couldn't Set Default Save Location 0x80070005" error. I would like to install Forza Horizon 4 on a different hard drive because it's 91GB and my SSD is already getting full. Is there a way to do so? If I try to install Forza Horizon 4 from the Store, I have a dropdown menu of all the drives available and when I choose the drive I want G: and click "Install", nothing happens - I can just keep on clicking "Install" infinitely and no download starts or anything. If I choose my C: drive, it downloads just fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated because I've had this issue for months now with different games.

    :)

    Hi Frank,

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    From your recent description, it seems like the issue is confined to Word documents. If true, then follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    • Launch Word application.
    • Go to File Menu and select Options.
    • In the pop-up dialog box, towards the left pane, select Save.
    • Under Default location file, browse the location you want to save.
    • Check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps.
