Hi! Since the Oculus app can only be installed on C: drive at the moment, I've run into the error preventing me from installing the game. I've linked the software folder with symlink to a hard drive which has plenty of space, but since the store checks free disk space on C: before starting the download, I only get the low disk space error. Is there any workaround to start the download process? (I do have ~30 GB of free space so it should be plenty for the downloaded files, I just can't get the ~44 GB required for the download to start)

As a side note: Since you provide Oculus store keys for Steam buyers, is there a possibility of getting Steam keys for Oculus buyers? Being able to play online with Steam players too would be nice and it would also solve this problem handily.

I thought i read to try symlinks to point C drive folder to another HDD/SDD

I couldn't get the Oculus app to start when I symlinked the whole folder, just linking the software folder seems to work just fine. Anyways, I think the problem still would be the same since the app checks the free space on C: drive in any case even if the whole folder is symlinked to another drive.
