    you probably need to uninstall the uplay app and then reinstall it to a drive that you want your games to reside.

    I also have an issue with not being able to set the save location of games that I want to download. I run uplay on a drive separate from my operating system, but the games download on to the operating system drive, would love to know how to change it?

    Temporary workaround: As with most apps with limited configuration options you can fix this if you are using Vista or higher and your file system is NTFS via symbolic links:

    Folder where uplay downloads installer cache:
    on X64: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\cache\installers
    on X86: C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\cache\installers

    1. Start downloading and wait until it gets to ~1mb or something...
    2. Pause download from uplay client
    3. Go to above folder - find the game cache subfolder (some number ex. 13)
    4. Move the folder (ex. D:\Games\Uplay\13)
    5. Run cmd (with admin privileges)
    6. Type mklink /D "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\cache\installers\13" "D:\Games\Uplay\13" and hit enter
    (on success it should say something like: symbolic link created for 13 <<===>> D:\Games\Uplay\13)
    7. Resume your download.

    If you have UAC enabled above folders might reside in a different location (most probably %appdata% or %localappdata%)
