Directory settings for UE4 Launcher?
As far as I can tell there aren't any options to change the default directory for downloading from the launcher (marketplace). Unfortunately I have a SSD with a small amount of space and nothing left to remove, so using C:\ is impossible for me.

I have had success with UE3, using a Junction Point to relocate data that the engine is looking for to another location. Basically, install this
and then move the folder that the marketplace wants to use, wherever you want it to go, then as it says on the page for that utility you can set the new location as the target, and drop a Junction Point back into your original location. As far as the engine is concerned the files are still where it wants them, but they're actually being stored elsewhere. Its still a dirty hack, but it doesn't affect other aspects of your environment.

This is a known issue and is being worked on currently. There is another post with some useful options for getting around the issue in the meantime:
Hope that helps!

Did make a post on the forum on how make build from source code "work" with Launcher and Marketplace in none default directory. Also a trick on point 13 of the tutorial.
Hope this will help!
