Home » Windows 10 error 0x80073d0b blocks moving games to another drive

Windows 10 users are reporting they can’t move games to another drive due to error 0x80073d0b when using the “Move” feature in the Apps & Games Settings. This error message is accompanied by the annoying invitation to “Try again later”, only to get the same result.

Judging by the description of the problem, it appears this is a new Windows 10 bug but Microsoft has yet to acknowledge it. The company’s support team couldn’t offer a solution for this issue, providing only a link completely unrelated to the bug described by users.

Windows 10 users are complaining about error 0x80073d0b

I’m getting the “We couldn’t move Halo 5: Forge” with an error code of 0x80073d0b after trying to move the game to another drive. I’m using the “move” feature in the Apps & Games Settings. If anyone could help out, I’d appreciate it.

The “solution” offered by Microsoft’s support team followed by the sudden silence when users insisted the answer had no connection with the issue, made Windows 10 users lose hope this bug could be fixed anytime soon.

I suspect that this is yet another Windows 10 bug and one which will likely take Microsoft weeks if not months to fix. In the meantime, it looks like the only option would be to uninstall the game then reinstall it with the Storage location set to the drive you want it to be located on since I do not recall Store asking me where I wanted it when I downloaded it.

The 0x80073d0b error is not related to a particular game title only. Users confirmed they encountered this error when trying to move other games like Forza Horizon 3, ReCore or Gears of War 4 as well.
