Installing Large Software c drive too small

    Sorry for the newb questions.  I'm not very computer savy and this might have already been answered. I'll put on the flame suit now.

This is a brand new Y510, windows vista. I went to install Microsoft Flight Simulator and of course it says that C drive is too small. I tried to install to D drive but it says that you can not put that in the root directory. Help?

Other than that, this has been a great buy!

Re: Installing Large Software c drive too small

Not familiar with this game... Anyway, try freeing some space on C:.
You may disable hibernation, change location of swapfile (Win+Pause->Advanced->Advansed->Settings->Advanced->Virtual memory change->Uncheck "automatic"->Reallocate swapfile on drive D;  It's amount must be formed to make both your RAM and swap summary weight 4 GB), disable system restore, relocate your documents to another folder on drive D (rightlick on folder->Properties->Location).
But does it really worth this?
Interestign fact - Microsoft's game is not running by default on Microsoft's OS and there's no option to change installation location... Or is it?

So, do not put it in root, just create some folder(i.e. games or program files) on D drive and install it there.
