    Xbox App on PC won't allow me to change my installation location to my D: Drive


    Recently I have purchased Xbox Game Pass on my Windows 11 PC however I cannot change my installation to my D: Drive and get the drive issue "D: - This drive isn't formatted as NTFS. (it is NTFS)

    I checked my sector size and its not 4K. I have tried split partitioning the D: Drive to F: Drive at 4096 sector size and when I click the F: Drive on the Xbox app it switches back to C: Drive automatically.

    Is there a way to resolve this issue? I have seen it online alot and after so much troubleshooting end up right where I started with no fix.

    Thanks.

    Hello isaacbiss,

    Welcome to Xbox Forums. We appreciate for sharing your concern with us and we hope that you are doing well today.

    We understand that you are having issues installing games to Drive C of your PC.

    Let us check on this together and sort this out to assist your concern.

    To change the install drive on Xbox app, you can follow these steps:

    1. Open Xbox app.
    2. On the top-right corner, click on your profile and select settings.
    3. Click on General and then navigate to Change, where this app installs games by default.
    4. Select the drive you want to install your games.

    Alternatively, you can right-click on the game’s icon in the left navbar and choose Manage. Click on the Files tab in the window that appears, then the Change drive under Options. Click on Change Drive under Options to choose a different folder.

    Another one possible solution is to delete the GamingServices and GamingServicesNet registry keys in RegEdit. Another possible issue is corrupted installation folders, which can be fixed by forcing the Xbox app to recreate them. Additionally, missing Windows Update KB5004476 can cause installation issues, which can be fixed by installing the update via the Microsoft Update Catalog. Other possible solutions include resetting the Microsoft Store app, reinstalling Gaming Services, and repairing the Xbox app.



    You can also visit this link for more information. Game installation issues on PC | Xbox Support.



    We hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    We will be glad to follow up and help you.

    Can't change installation location from C: to D: drive at all

    Nope, that didn't solve the issue. Still only giving me the option for my C: drive. I should note that the app does show my D: drive in the settings but won't save it as a default installation spot but whenever I go to download a game it won't let me change it

    Forza Horizon 3 Will not download

    Found the problem. Had to change the default save location for apps from the windows store from my main drive (C:) to my game drive (D:). There appears to be a problem with the drop-down menu save location. Now it is installing without issue
