Allow users to install entirely to another hard drive
Allow a user to install *all* of Visual Studio to a drive other than the system drive. I have a very small SSD and find it infuriating that Visual Studio can only install a third to my mechanical drive and must install 4GB to my system drive.
I hope in a future version, when you choose to install to a directory other than the default directory, the C disk space occupied by Visual Studio as small as possible.Now, after I installed VS2010, C disk will increase several GB of even though I have to choose to install to D drive directory.
Thank you for submitting your idea. We are currently limited by the requirement to install certain system components such as the .NET Framework to the system drive, so we are unable to address this suggestion immediately. However, we will keep this open so we can re-evaluate it for a future release.

Please add this option. I am working in a large company, all development VMs that allocated to us usually have very small system drive (c:), and we do SharePoint development which means c: gets fill up very quickly, and it is almost impossible to upgrade or patch those tools or platform within those development VM due to insufficient c: space. It usually takes 20 working days for our VM team to fulfill any storage increase request. It is not developer friendly without this option. Thanks
This would also be great so you could install to a RamDisk.
