    Windows 10 Store Wont Install Apps to drive other than C: gives error

    Hey, i was wondering if someone could help

    i just bought GOW4 and instead of having it take up a bunch of room on my C drive, which is a 240 GB SSD, I wanna put it on my E: drive, for games.

    However, it seems to have downloaded, but it keeps trying to download 47MB and errors out, 0x80070005. I can install apps to the C: drive and move them over to the e drive fine. But that's not a solution, I dont have room to install GOW4 and then move it :S

    I hope someone can help me

    Just some more information, its ONLY the E: Drive that wont accept installs from windows store,(of anything, i tried a bunch of different free apps).

    All my other harddrives (5) accept installs fine. So id say its definitely some kind of permission issue. trouble is, i dont know how to fix it.

    I'm not at all sure how you're currently trying to change the location for new apps from the Store.
