    Windows Store - Change Default App Storage Location


    How do you change the default file storage location for Windows Store apps? I have a 32GB SSD which has W8 pro installed on and would like to store ALL application data on my 1TB HDD .... I would like to use the D:\ drive vs the C:\ drive ....

    Thanks in advance for your assistance ...

    Anyone? Even I would love to install 3rd party apps in a drive other than the system drive.

    Same here, except I have a 120GB HDD but with all my main apps it won't be long till I'm down to 50-30GB.. and that's basically just for the rest of the system updates over the life of Win8.
