I got my Oculus today and my small SSD C drive doesn't have enough space to install any apps. I tried to install to my E drive but it doesn't show up as eligible even though it should. The E drive is an internal, 2TB Seagate HDD, NTFS, and is not raided. I can find no reason that it wouldn't be eligible. I cant install on C and need a fix. I tried using symlinks but the app just crashed as soon as it launched. I assume this is due to some DRM BS? Is there a fix or a work around? Until I get this fixed I've just got a $600 blindfold in a fancy box. Also, why in the world can you not install apps to custom directories? Is that not completely asinine? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    According to "search" installing to another drive in in the basic instalation

    Yes, but you can only select a drive which the installer deems "eligible". In my case, the only available drive displayed is the C: drive. My problem is that (as far as I can tell) my E: drive meets all the requirements to be eligible yet is still not displayed.
  • FIXED! okay so the problem was that my E drive was setup as dynamic instead of basic. I decided to just install another 250gb SSD and make sure it was basic, NTFS, etc. Worked like a charm. I still think that it is ridiculous that you cant use custom directories, but whatever, it works now,.
