  1. We couldn't set your default save location.


    So I wanted to download Forza Horizon 4 Deluxe edition on a windows 10.
    But the game is more than 70 GB and I don't have space on my Drive C.
    When I tried to change the download location to Drive D I got this error: We couldn't set your default save location. 879e60f9-a5bb-4a05-baf2-dfb8d6d7a992?upload=true.png

    What should I do? A little help would be really good because the game was not cheap...

    :)
     

  2. Default location to save documenets

    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.

    "We couldn`t create a new partition or locate an existing one."

    Try this:

    Before you get to that message, press SHIFT + F10 to open a command prompt.

    Run diskpart.
    At the diskpart prompt, run these commands:

    list disk

    At this point you should see the SSD as disk 0. If it has another disk number, use that number rather than "0" in the next command.

    select disk 0
    clean
    exit (to exit from diskpart)
    exit (to exit from the command prompt)

    That should clear the contents of the disk. The entire disk space should then show up in Windows setup as "Unallocated Space" as in the screenshot below.
