    Hi, is there a way to chose the directory as to where win8 apps and their content is installed? And could the install directory be set to an SDcard? Im running out of free space on the ssd quickly, because of the nook app for windows.

    As far as I know they install in the user's app data directory. You could try doing a sym link to the SD card but it would cause system instability if the sd card isn't readable for some reason. So, I don't recommend it.

    You can use a program like Disk Space Fan to figure out where the bulk of your storage is taken up, then go from there.
