Mutli-drive problem
 
I have 2 drives on my computer, a 120 SSD that has my windows files and select games and a 1T HHD that holds most of the bigger games. Included in the bigger games is STO.

I orginally installed the game on the C drive and then decided that it would work better on the E drive. I copy and pasted the Cryptic folder over and have all the files there. For some reason, everytime I start the launcher (located in the E drive) it starts the 9gig patch to put all of the files on the C drive.

Anyone know how to tell it to stop trying to install the game on the C drive and go with the files on the E drive instead?

Just a thought but you are sure your not just using a shortcut pointing to C rather than clicking the executable directly?

Also the folder size for STO is currently 14.7GB so its not a full download so have you recently changed options and told it to disable on-demand patching?

If I had to guess (windows) you'll need to open the registry and find STO's entry and edit the default drive letter.

Thanks! That did the trick, I can't beleive that I hadn't thought about going into the registry to make sure.
