    Windows Store - Temporary download folder?


    hey,

    i just upgraded to windows 10 and having some problems right now with the windows store and the default save location. Windows 10 is installed on my SSD drive "C:". but its only a 64 gb SSD so i wanted to install all apps to my 1 TB HDD "D:".

    i went into system settings -> storage -> "new apps will save to" and changed it to my "D:" drive

    now when i start downloading the app (its 50 gb) it seems like its still using some temporary folder on my "C:" drive because it fills up pertty fast and im getting the message that i dont have enough storage. is there any way i can fix this? there is no way i can clean up 50gb on my SSD.. windows alone is using like 40gb of it

    :)

    Temporary Downloads Folder

    1. There is no Temporary Downloads folder in Windows 10, your browser sets where your downloads are stored - accessible through settings in your browser. Temporary files created during the download are also stored there, which is typically c/users/name/downloads
    unless moved by the user

    2. This folder is accessible on all computers through %UserProfile%\Downloads

    3. Windows 10 Updates and installers are stored in C:\WIndows~WS, C:\Windows~BT and C:\ESD before the ISO is created

    4. %Temp% will bring you to the users temporary folder where temporary files your applications create are stored, not temporary downloads - though when you donwload software and install it, the installation files are stored there while the installer is loading,
    but are normally deleted by the installer upon completion

    If this does not answer your question, please explain exactly what files you are looking for and I will direct you to where they get stored . . .

    Temporary Internet File conflict

    I downloaded it from the Store

    It was a free download

    The message in the troubleshooter app stated "The location where temporary Internet files are stored has changed. Resetting this to default may resolve some Windows Store issues, would you like to reset this to default?

    I also have Microsoft Mahjong and it has no issues with the temporary file location that Outlook uses.
