    Did anyone test if it is possible to install apps on PC on other discs?

    I did not try but it can be done see this link how to do it on windows 8 so it should be similar in windows 10.
    But beware of the consequences as explained in the tutorial.

    This is particularly why I'm asking it. You can do it in w8 but not in w8.1 😢.

    I have tried both methods shown here on Windows 10 preview build 9926:
    (can't post link) redmondpie > how-to-install-windows-8-app-store-apps-on-different-drive-location

    Neither was successful. Changing the registry key had no effect. I could not complete the steps in the Symlink method, and now the start menu does not work. I got as far as copying the WindowsApps folder to my second drive, but when I tried to delete the copy on the OS drive I got "access is denied" errors. I tried it again in Safe Mode, same thing, and the start menu would not work in safe mode either. So, I am about to repair my install to restore the start menu and undo any damage done.

    If anyone finds a way to do this on Windows 10, please post it. I hope Microsoft makes this a core feature in the release version. I seem to have the common situation warranting this feature: small SSD for Windows and a large secondary HDD.
