    Program installed on SD card runs but is not shown on drive


    I successfully installed a program (LibreOffice) on a Transcend MicroSDXC. The program runs correctly, but when I attempt to exam the contents of the drive (the SD card), I find only two empty folders: one with my name and the other titled WindowsApps. Further, I can't seem to find anywhere that shows the program's path. I have Hidden items and File name extensions set to display. Are there further steps I should take to be able to view the contents of the SD card?

    Thank you.

    • Does the program run without the SD card inserted?
    • Have you you enabled show hidden and system files it could be hidden
    • Verify the install location by opening a cmd prompt and type wmic product get name,instatlllocation

    Great call! Program was on C drive. not the SD card. Prior to installation, I'd set new apps to be saved to the SD card, but after the installation I changed the setting back to This PC, as I didn't want all future apps to automatically install to the SD card. I will have to try an installation again to see if the program is located where I think it is!

    Thank you!
