A pc was rebuilt few days ago...it appears during the REPAIR of Windows XP, the person who reload the O/S, points it to F drive.......previous Windows XP installation was done on C drive.
The REPAIR was completed without any issue BUT the F drive has only 50mb disk space left after repairing the O/S.....but the C driver has 160gb disk space left.
When you try to install any application (e.g, Microsoft Office), points the destination folder to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office........although it does accepts that destination folder........when it tries to complete the installation, it says that "insufficient disk space left"....it appears it uses the F drive as default destination DRIVE letter despite you tell the installation to use different destination folder.
No matter which application you install including creating destination folder under C drive,...the installation keeps defaulting to F drive., so the installation will NOT complete.
Is there a way to resolve this annoying Windows XP behaviour?
