    XBOX attempting to lie about where Sea of thieves is installed on my computer.


    So recently i found Sea of Thieves on gamepass. Downloaded it and specified my D:/ Drive. However i noticed no space was being taken in my D:/ drive and space was being taken in my C:/ drive. So i waited until after it installed and went into my D:/ drive to find Sea of Thieves. Needless to say i didn't find it. However i did manage to find it in my C Drive In WindowsApps. I went back to the XBOX app only to find it saying "81.5 GB installed on Drive - D".Can someone just explain to me why its attempting to tell me its in my D:/ drive when it visibly is not in there at all. It is in my C:/ d

  3. Unable to Install Sea Of Thieves on Solid State Drive

    I had Sea of Thieves installed on my harddrive, but the load times were slow so I wanted to switch it to my solid state drive. I took the following steps.

    • Uninstalled Sea of Thieves
    • Navigated to the microsoft store and selected install
    • Selected C: drive (which is my ssd) as the install location
    • After completing the download I get the error: "Couldn't install. We'll retry shortly".
    I've attempted this twice with no luck. It's a large download so it takes a long time to retry, I'm hoping for an easy resolution to get this installed on my C: drive.

    Thank you,

    Josh
