Hello,

I just recently purchased cities xl 2011. I went to install it on my laptop but it said not enough space as it went to install on c drive. I cannot free up anymore space on that drive. I do have another drive D which has over 200gb free of space. The game needs 8gb so it would have no problem to install on D but when installing there isn't an option to where you wish to install the game. It automatically installs in C where there is no room so it says no disk space. Could anybody please help

how big is the C: drive ? - if you have 200gb free on D why not move some items onto D - often programs want to install on the c: drive

what OS - windows version do you have
and the physical drive may be split into C and D - often the case

you could move the user account over to D and that would nove all your data , music, pictures etc and then on C you just have windows and programs

can we have some detail make and model of pc
age of pc
windows version on the pc

Generally there should be a change destination folder... are you doing a typical setup?

Many programs will not allow installation on another drive. Many Microsoft Programs are that way. In any case, all programs put files on the system drive during installation even if they are installed elsewhere, and most games put the vast majority of their files on C: no matter where they are installed. So with most games, installing elsewhere won't solve the problem.

Since more space will be used every time you install something, it may be time for a new drive.

You could also resize your partitions, but only if you have recovery disks to reinstall Windows because changing partitions otherwise will make recovery inaccessible when you need it.
