    Change Google Drive Path


    Good morning people! How is it going?

    So... I want to change Google Drive's set up path to another Drive because I don't want to have it installed in the SSD. Maybe I'm wrong and It can be there without any problem, but... is this possible?

    Thanks in advance

    When clicking change location, you can not select another hard drive?

    That's for the sync folder, not installation folder...

    Yeah, I read what you were asking in the user profiles thread. This link explains how to do it with windows 7, not sure if it would work with 8
