    Wow, thank you so much, I had this problem for a while now but its fixed. I thought I was never going to be able to play Forza on PC but its installing right now. I definitely didn't think about disk compression messing my downloads up. Again, thank you so much.

    Happy to resovle

    I'm happy that I read through all these and now the problem is solved by uncompressing the windows app folder

    @ biggs - I was sceptical that this would even work but, yup, turning off compression for the WindowsApps folder on H: and hitting Apply does indeed fix this issue and I've been able to successfully move Age of Empires: Castle Siege from C: to H:!!! I can't believe it was something as dumb as that. Honestly I cannot thank you enough.

    The irony is that I went and replaced my 256 GB Crucial m4 SSD over the weekend with a 1 TB Samsung 850 EVO specifically so that if I had to update any games on H: (which would fail with error 0x80070005) then at least I would have the option of moving them to C: and updating them there, something I could not do before due to a lack of space.

    Oh well, I now have a much faster boot drive and can install some games to an SSD now; DDOM for example massively benefits from being on an SSD with my loading times cut down from 3-5 minutes (yeah, really!) to under a minute!

    Thanks again. I will make sure to update my thread with the solution as well for anyone else who has the same issue. And you're right it IS another dumb Microsoft bug, one that really should not happen since file compression has been around since Windows XP I believe. Clearly, Microsoft never bothered to test this with it enabled!
