Visual Studio 2022 install on other drive

Hi guys,

I am working on Windows 10 Enterprise 20H2 laptop. I have 2 drives, C and T. I am running out of space for installing VS 2022 on drive C (10 GB free space) so I wonder if I can install VS 2022 on drive T (50 GB free space) and use it without any problems?

Thank you.

    I did install VS 2022 onto my drive T, but as I told you before I already installed VS 2019 on my drive C so some shared components, SKD etc ate up from drive C.

    I have done this as well as the C: was near full so installed on D drive. This has led to a nightmare of using ADO though. It looks for $(VSToolsPath) - "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v17.0" but this is installed in D:. I cannot find any good information on Google or Microsoft boards to speak to how to change the $(VSToolsPath) to point to the D:.
