    Can't choose my external SSD drive as an installation folder


    I formated my pc and started reinstalling everything. I have a new external SSD drive so i started installing all game there.

    When i started for the first time the xbox app i was able to choose my SSD but after several restart of my pc during windows update now i can't choose it as an installation path.
    Do you have any solution? if i go to setting i can select it as default installation folder but when i try to install a game i can see every other driver but not the external SSD

    Import app/game from old disk

    Hi Del,

    I believe you should be able to copy or move the folder from your Notebook's internal hard drive to your external SSD as long as you can have both drives up on your computer.

    If you know how to locate the folder and select the option to copy or move and then select the location you want to move it to give it a try and let us know if it worked.

    If it doesn't you will need to install it again onto your new SSD.

    Forza Motorsport 7 on account just showing "Bundle is not available"!!?

    The WindowsApps folder will be created on your C hard drive, you will see the game folder but it doesn't mean that the game is being allocated on your C drive. The game will only occupy the storage you selected to install. If nothing is being installed on your SSD you have to check if your SSD is formatted in NTFS format.

    Thank you.

    It seems to have started installing, but now I'm having a separate issue.

    Under Settings>Storage in Windows 10, I have everything set to an external SSD, drive I: but the microsoft store, no matter what, installs the game to the default "windowsapps" folder in the C: drive. Is there anything I can do to fix this??

    Rise of the Tomb Raider only starts with DLC installed, if console is switched offline.

    Interesting. I have the game and all it's DLC installed on an external hard drive with no issues. The only difference I can see is that you're using an SSD hard drive where I use a plain old WD Elements.

    I'm wondering if it's something to do with the nature of how SSD drives store data compared to none SSD drives.

    Do you have the external drive set as the default location for all downloads/installs in the storage settings on the Xbox ?

    Xbox(Beta) For windows 10 UNABLE TO CONFIGURE DOWNLOAD LOCATION

    you can select any drive as a place to install but it will create the three folders and add certain system files to that drive, it will also make the folders it creates as system folders so you will not be able to access them, i currently have all my gamepass
    games on a 4tb hdd, my windows install is on an ssd.

    gamepass games can be moved to another drive but that drive will also then contain the three folders. it is a bad implementation and i would rather have something like how all the other work, where i can just copy the folder and shoft it over to another
    drive if i please.
