How do I install Hyper-V to custom location?

Hector Alvarez Fernandez 26 Reputation points

I have a 150GB C: partition for the OS, and yesterday I had to install Hyper-V. Needless to say, Hyper-V installed itself on the C partition like most MS apps do, taking up a bit more than 50 GB, and basically putting available storage on the red line. This is unacceptable, I don't want clutter in OS storage... and not only that, the whole thing is located in c:\users\public as well, which is even worse!

I need to either move or remove it, can someone help me install Hyper-V on a proper location instead of this random place? Thanks.
