    Windows Store save location only show C: D:, not E F G H???

    I originally posted this in another thread but after a few days with no replies i decided to make my own.
    This is partly because my problem, and that of the original poster, is not identical..

    Please help if you can think of anything. Im not often stuck with problems but this time im not able to figure out what is wrong. Windows Communities has failed to help (no replies after 3 days), Windows Support failed (no shock there..) and my google-fu has failed..

    There might be two separate issues at work here but all my information is listed in pictures below.
    My main issue is that i cannot install Forza Horizon 3 in the right drive, this problem lead me to the Storage area in settings which only shows my C drive.

    I have had this windows installation for a while, it is fully patched and working well except for this issue.

    Windows 10 Enterprise ver 1607. (Because it was supposed to be part of my work domain but figured out i didnt need to).

    Below is the storage settings, only showing C: , "New apps will save to:" dropdown is activated, only showing C:

    This is my storage as windows sees it:

    When i try to download and install a game from Windows Store i run into problems because i dont want this game on C: or D: , i want it on G:

    Lastly the registry settings:

    Anyone able to tell me how i can get my other drives to show up in Storage, maybe this will fix the issue?

    Hi, have you tried creating a new user for test purposes?
    What is your build level? (Windows key + R, winver)
    I suspect you may be using 1511.
    The ability to change this was added in a later update in 1511.

    I have an arrow beside all save locations.

    Hi there, my version is 1607, build ver. 14393.187

    I have tried creating a local user in order to see if the problem went away and it didnt. It is exactly the same.. :\

    Ok, that shows it's a Windows issue not a profile problem.
    Was this ok before you upgraded to 1607?
    I have the same build.

    Let's do the standard things first- worth doing anyway. Maybe someone will be able to suggest sthg specific.
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    And if clear, from an admin command prompt
    sfc /scannow

    Here's what I see:

    I actually have no idea if this issue has been present since my first install of Windows 10 or not.
    I have never used the Windows Store nor the "Storage" view in settings.

    Good- no basic system corruption.

    Try using this for the Store

    Tried resetting the store app and that changed nothing

    EDIT: Also tried running the troubleshooter on the Store app (ref: Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums ) without any change.

    Sadly no..

    The first thing i tried was the registry fix. However i also tried changing the service settings (it was set to manually start (triggered).
    Have also tried restarting service, restarting computer etc..

    Do tell if you dig up anything else tho, im willing to try anything at this point. Im even contemplating reinstalling windows from scratch to see if that fixes the issue..

    Well, before a clean install, try this:

    Using's cautious repair tool appropriately (note the cautious stages), choose just repairs 1 by one that seem relevant.

    If that leads to nothing, then:

    An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

    For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed, and x64 if you have a 64 bits OS, else x86 (32 bits).

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    - this includes a link from which you can obtain Windows 10 iso file (" download a Windows 10 ISO"), or create a bootable medium.

    I would recommend creating the bootable medium, as this can be used
    - for any future in-place upgrade repair install
    - to boot from and use its recovery options should Windows become unbootable.
    - to clean install Windows

    This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
    - all/most associations will be unchanged
    - all your programs will be left installed
    - no personal data should be affected
    - you will lose any custom fonts
    - you will lose any customised system icons
    - you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
    - you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
    - Windows.old will be created
    - system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
    - you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)
    - inactive title bar colouring (if used) will be reset to default
    - if Qttabbar is installed, you need to re-enable it in explorer (Options, check Qttabbar)
    This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, and as updates are mostly cumulative, there will be few to do.

    Before you perform this major repair procedure, do create a disk image.

    Please consider using disk imaging regularly. It's a brilliant way to
    - preserve your system (and your sanity)
    - back up your data
    - restore your system to a previously working state in a relatively short time

    Recommended: Macrium Reflect (free/commercial) + boot disk/device + large enough external storage medium.
