    Have you updated windows 10? If not run the update app as at least three patches have been released and i know that the first patch did help a user with a similar issue.

    Could you clarify the Install programs to other drive situation?

    I figured it out, for some reason the drive was unallocated but like I said it's a fresh build so mabe Win 10 doesn't pick up allocate drives other than it OS drive.

    Good job! I've actually experienced the same thing but I think it was under win 8.1. As soon as it's allocated a driver letter then bam it shows up. If I remember correctly it was only after I'd checked Storage management that i realised what was wrong..:eek3:
