So I decided to install Visual Studio 2017. I have a 128GB SSD that I purchase a few years back now, I know I’m due an upgrade. 🙂
I wanted to play around with the Xamarin bit’s. So I selected what I wanted and it came to 40GB’ish, no problem I have a 1TB mechanical HDD.. so I changed the install location to D:\ drive.
As you can see from the screenshot above, I have selected D: drive and you can see the Android SDK bits selected to be installed top right.
So I click install and it fails with out of disk space error. What the installer doesn’t make you aware off is the Android SDK bits are installed to the C: drive!
As you can see the SDK grabbed 10Gb of the C: drive.
So there you go, make sure you have disk space available on your C: drive.
The most frustrating thing is a little warning would save a lot of wasted time.
I have logged this on user voice after tweeting Visual Studio.
You can go up vote it here.
Happy coding and have fun! 🙂
