I want to change the download location of games, but on the 'Installs & Saves' tab it won't let me choose my D:\ partition, where I normally download my games. Even at the install of Origin I can't select that drive.
How can I change that?

  • Is this a game that is already installed and you want to move or something that is not downloaded yet? If it's already installed, you can try moving it.

  • Yours is weird looking... my file explorer at least shows me my drives on the left hand side of the File Explorer window.

    Are you able to just type in "D:\"?

    Long shot, but, if this is not your personal computer, then there might be a small chance that a group policy been set to limit usable drives. See this link for details

You need to add the navigation pane back:

Navigation Pane

Click on Organise -> Layout -> Navigation Pane

You should get back all your drives/etc then.

If that doesn't help - could you follow these instructions and post a screenshot of what does appear in the navigation pane.

  • I don't think changing drive visibility in Windows will help at all. That's a GUI problem, but the OP's problem is that the drive seems non-existent.
