    hi guys!I have a big issue, it's the second installation in few days I did with this method for that reason. The problem is that I'm not able to install or move NON system apps to D drive or any different drive.I already had my user folder into secondary disk until a month ago and I installed a lot of apps to the second drive itself (Aphalt Xtreme for example - while Asphalt 8 Airbone must be installed on C:\).Now I had to reinstall Windows and I have this error when installing apps on D:\: the usual error code 0x80073cf9, while when installing apps to C:\ it works nice.
    I have errors when trying to move apps from C to D (or other drives), too: error code 0x80073d0b.

    I know it cannot be related to the Users folder on the second disk, because errors also happen when choosing a third disk, but also because I did it until a month ago; but I don't really know where to ask for: Microsoft community is useless and they gurus there always propose the same solutions for everything: sfc scannow, clean boot, bla bla bla. I already tried to reset store and unrigeter it but nothing helped.. Maybe I should uninstall and install the store again, but I fear that I would lose it for ever..

    So, I really don't know what to do guys.. Do you have any suggestion, please?
    Thanks a lot!

    Out of curiosity, one more question: How is disk space on both disks? When you performed your latest install, did you clean (format) both disks or only the system disk?

    And since this is not related to moving \Users tree but rather trying to install applications / programs to locations other than default, I would suggest making a new post in this forum instead: https://www.tenforums.com/general-support/

    both C:\ and D:\ drives were formatted during Windows installation just 2 days ago, the have plus 70 GB free on C and more than 450 on D.

    I know I should ask elsewhere, but I would like to be sure that people who relocated Users folders does not have issue on moving or installing apps into other disks, this is the reason why I'm asking here, please forgive me. Also I remember that I had this issue last month, and that was one of the reason why I opted for a clean installation from scratch..
    But the weird is that a lot of apps were already installed on D:, then suddenly, without any apparent reason, a few apps stop working: both system apps both installed apps..

    So maybe, a new windows update introduced this bug, but if you don't have any issue it couldn't be that the reason..

    I am quite sure there's no such bug.

    Are you talking about apps downloaded from Windows Store?

    EDIT: to everyone having the Users folder relocated as per guide of this thread, could you please try to select a different drive from system one (like in screenshot above) for apps and then install a few apps from the Store? I mean, just 2 or 3 apps, nothing more..

    I would really appreciate it guys.

    P.S.: first please try to search if there are updates available for your build.

    thanks a lot!
