Windows says I don't have enough disk space?

I'm trying to create a Windows 10 USB to install on another computer.I have an SSD that is used for windows and windows only, and a hard drive used for everything else. The SSD doesn't have enough space available, but the hard drive does. How can I install it on the hard drive? It wants to install on the SSD...

    Are you using a 16GB stick?

    A 8GB stick is not really 8GB, but more like 7.6GB once formatted, etc.

    If it is a SSD only, then you do not have the 8GB free space. Try something like CCleaner to clean out any junk files, and try again.

    Not clear as to what you are trying to do. Windows always wants to try and install on the "C:" drive

    Do you have a DVD drive?

    If so, rather than using the tool, download the ISO image from here.

    Save that to the drive that has free space, then use your DVD burner to create the Win 10 setup disk.

    This will work, and is a manual alternative to the USB creation tool.
