Ok. I see. I would like to be able to download to the c: partition too. I
don't like that setup when you always have to go to the downloads folder
and copy to root. I am the only one who uses this machine.
You should not copy directly to C: .
For example, don't expect a browser to copy as C:\some.file .
That's considered illegal, and could cause the browser to abort.
The root of C: is supposed to be protected on modern
Windows. That's to prevent malware from affecting any
files remotely related to booting that happen to be
in the root of C: .
The browser has a Preferences panel (or a hamburger symbol
for getting there), and one of the elements in the Preferences
should be a place to define a Downloads location.
You can, for example, create C:\Downloads and
use that value in the browser Preferences, and it
What's not supposed to be allowed, is dumping directly
into C: itself.
