Why can't I install even when I have enough space?

So I'm installing my oculus software for the first time and it tells me that my drive doesn't have 15,7 GB of data that the software requires so I google it and I found this https://support.oculus.com/1142129705828091/ so I try it and the user account control pops up asking me if I want to run so I do but the software doesn't launch. So I download the setup to a different drive that has enough space and it still tells me that I don't have enough space. So I google some more and  people are saying that you need to free up 120 GB of data for it to install. Seems annoying but I do that. I delete the software again and download it again to the same drive and still no dice. What is going on here? Why can't I install it no matter what I try?

    And if you want to see my drives and which one I downloaded it on, I've attached some pictures.

    That's weird, I tried that before and it didn't work and now it did work. Thank you!

    Ahh, sorry - see you resolved your problem.  Please ignore this post.

    I am under the impression that no matter what your final destination drive is, that the C drive is used as an intermediate download/storage location. 
    Try cleaning up the C drive, and see if you can increase available space. See: https://www.windowscentral.com/best-7-ways-free-hard-drive-space-windows-10  (just one of any number of links)
