    Software not installing in the C:\ drive


    As the title says new applications installed in a new installation of Windows 10 are installing in a drive other than the C:\ drive. This is new. All was working until about 2 weeks after I turned the computer over to my wife (it's hers).

    As you can see the c:\ drive is in fact set as the programs drive. I'll be happy to provide any other screenshots to help debug this issue. Right now MY WIFE IS NOT HAPPY!!! Please help bring joy back to our house.

    But wouldn't that confuse the computer boot sequence. As it stands, Disk 1 is booting (drive C;\), It will be tricky if I change cables. Or am I wrong?

    And, I am sure that things were working properly to start as most everything is installed to Drive d:\ it is only recent applications that are installing to the other drive.

    I'll give it a try, (when my wife isn't working on her computer) and report back. The confusing part to me is why I was able to install software to the proper location (the C:\ drive), until I was not.

    Thanks in advance for you help.

    I'll give changing the drive to 0 a try, (when my wife isn't working on her computer) and report back. The confusing part to me is why I was able to install software to the proper location (the C:\ drive), until I was not.

    Thanks in advance for you help.
