    Can't Download and Install Games to Drives other than C:/


    Dear All,

    I have an issue regarding downloading games into other drives than C:/ on my computer. Every time I tried to install the game to D:/ or E:/ drives, my downloaded game will show an error code 0x80073d21 with title "Change where you install apps"

    I already did the drive change in Storage > Change where new content is saved to other than C:/ but the result is still nothing even if I put the exact same download location in Xbox Apps. Every time it downloads and the size reached 845 KB, it stopped and instantly notify and error as mentioned earlier. Is there any other way to fix this?

    Note: I did this on two different computers to test that it might be storage or OS/Apps issue and the result remains the same. The game MUST go to C.

    :)

    Can't install on a drive other than C:

    Hello, jdcopelin. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas, and I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    Do you know if your E: drive is NTFS? Game Pass only allow games to be installed on NTFS partitions.

    - Click the start button and then (depending on your operating system) click Computer or My Computer.

    - In the Computer window, right click the drive you wish to check and then click Properties from the menu.

    - In the Disk Properties window, you will see it next to File system.

    If it's FAT32, just convert it to NTFS:

    Open a command prompt window by typing Command prompt in the Windows search box. Right click on it and Run as administrator. Type:

    convert E: /fs:ntfs

    Press Enter to being the process.

    The file system conversion process should not take very long and the on-screen details are fairly intuitive.

    Once completed, your FAT32 drive will be converted to NTFS. Close the Command Prompt window and you’re all done.

    See if this helps and let me know, please.

    Prey on Games Pass for PC

    Has anyone been able to resolve this? Prey is the only game I can't install on a drive other than C:, why does it need to be on a system drive?

    XBOX GAMEPASS GIVING ERROR downloading games.

    Are you trying to install the game to a drive other than the C Drive? Ive seen that error code before and remember it maybe being like an old glitch on the windows store that some games needed ti be downloaded to the C drive or something like that.

    Xbox app wont install games on C drive, but on another without a problem.

    It doesn't go about FORZA, it goes that now I can't install any game, no matter which on C drive, but on other drives, it's not a problem, I already installed FORZA on other drives, want FIFA, but I can't install it on C after the situation with FORZA, and reseted laptop. This is the case.

    Fallout 76 Game Pass for PC - cannot launch

    Hi,

    I had this when I first tried it. Turns out the Game-Pass version just doesn't like being installed on any drive other than the C:\ drive. Do you have the game installed on another drive than C:\?
