[Closed] Change Storage Drive of Epic Games Launcher
Okay, this isn't 100% related to UE4 but I thought this was the only place I could post it, and I'm trying to install UE4 so it kinda counts. Anyway in Epic Games Launcher it never asked me where I wanted to install, my C drive is just a low-space SSD and it's trying to install UE4 there and of course, it won't let me since the drive is full. How do I make it install UE4 somewhere else like the E or G drive? I don't see any settings anywhere.

The problem is that the Derived Data Cache folder still installs in the AppData folder on the C: drive, but there's a fix here under the Shader Cache section. Just have to edit your project's engine.ini to write the DDC to the project folder instead of the Common folder.
I created a symbolic link from my program files folder to my ssd named "Epic Games" and copied all the unreal engine files into it. Here's a guide for you to follow: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/
