    Can't install some games on a drive, but I can on others


    When I go and try to download a game (In this case Gears of War 5), I am greeted with an option to install on what drive. I go to find my G: drive, but I can't find it. I just think "it's not a problem I can just find another game" (which also in this case Gears of War 4" and guess what, I CAN install it to my G: drive and I could also do that with Sea of Thieves, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Injustice 2, and Battlefield V, but not Just Cause 4, Halo Infinite, Doom Eternal, Dead by Daylight, Back 4 Blood, and other Triple-A type games. If anyone knows the solution to this, please tell me and others with this problem a solution. I am on PC, and I and looking at the All PC Games section of the Game Pass selection in the Xbox App. My G: drive is set to default. An explanation would be most appreciated, thanks for taking your time to read this, Happy New Year, thank you!

    :)

    Can't install some games on a drive, but I can on others

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    To my knowledge not all PC games can be installed on alternate drives. Quite a number of them do require to be installed on the C drive in order to work.

    Not enough storage even though game is installed

    Hi,

    Note that game updates can only be installed on the drive where the game is, they can't go to other drives.

    For example, game is installed on internal hard drive where there is only 5GB free but update is 6GB+. The game can't be updated because there isn't enough storage, even though there is plenty of free storage on external drive/s.

    Solution, move this game or other games to the other drive. Update can now be applied.

    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.

    You can move some items to the other drive in order to create room on your C drive to install the game

    What game are you trying to install? Some games can't be installed to the hard drive of the console?
