    Hi, presumably you've followed this:
    Apps Save Location - Change in Windows 10

    Please post a screenshot to illustrate your setting.

    Can you advise how you know the program is on C:?

    1. Installing universal apps on a different drive will give an error message if you need to do an in-place upgrade repair install. You will have to uninstall all such apps for that to proceed.
    2. To save space on your SSD consider (e.g.)
    - disabling hibernation
    - moving all personal data to your other drive(s)

    I have a 256Gb SSD and a great many programs installed: I have some 150Gb or more free. I don't use the default library folders.
