- Issue type: Cannot choose installation drive
- OS Version/build: Windows 10 Professional
- App version: 126.96.36.199 (31259) Channel: stable Build: 8858db3
- Steps to reproduce:
- Click on “Docker for Windows Installer.exe” (Docker’s installation message SAYS it will install to drive E:, but it actually installs to drive C:)
- Make sure only drive E: is selected under shared drives.
- Attempt to change the Disk image location to a new empty folder on drive E: (Docker asks for Windows password and appears it will accept the change, but it defaults right back to drive C:)
It is common for Windows users to have a limited SSD drive for the OS only, and to install all user and program data on an HDD. Most well-behaved Windows applications obey my settings and install directly to drive E:, with no part of the program on C:. However, Docker, while acknowledging the setting during installation, ignores it, and installs both its own software and its virtual drive on the SSD, which means I have to immediately uninstall Docker so I can use my computer.
