I understand that this has been asked and kind of answered before; but it was more
answered with a “You should do this” instead of a “why it was done”
Currently there is a distributing trend to install all program data on the “C” drive with
not options to change location. This would be all fine and dandy if not for the rise
of SSD drives and there limited space. Most computers, even the ones sold via Microsoft
OEM partners, now contain small but fast SSDs.
So for people who would like to keep their OSs only on the main drive and applications
stored in a larger mechanical or external drive. What is the reason by limiting this, and
will it ever be a feature?
