I have a small SSD drive for my C:.
I understand that VS requires some files be on C:.
However, I can find no setup options in the beta to move as much as possible to D: and not install unneeded options.
Only options that I can find are language ones..

you can Select "D" Drive To Install VS 11.
but .Net Framework and Shared File will be installed in C Drive.
How much Space is available in your "C" Drive ?

It's only 120gb drive.
Windows, plus VS11, plus VS for WP7, and other stuff that installs, I can no longer successfully do a Windows Update.
I've changed all the default folders that I can in the registry, and dragged/moved some of my /users folders to D:, but still a lot to go.
No easy way --manually deinstalling bits and pieces, and reinstalling hoping to get them on D:.
Computer was almost unuasable with one 7200rpm C: drive; totally bottlenecked the system. Quad cpu and memory were barely used. Now the cpu is getting exercised, and the system is blazing fast.
But I really don't need SDKs, log files, samples, help files, backup dll folders, and other static crap sitting on my SSD drive. A real pain.
I had to disable sleep mode, because there is no room for the hiberfil.sys file on C:, where it must be..
Know any references on moving as much as possible off the C: drive, especially non-essential Windows and VS files?

I installed VS 11 in D Drive.
C Drive Used 2.70 GB
D Drive Used 3.03 GB
In this beta version module selection option is not displayed. just ask directory location to install VS 11.

I think Kalpesh is no the right way. VS 11 now can not be customized. You can only choose the root drive.

If you specify D drive as a commandline option, it does install some of the files to D drive.
I hope the release versin has a lot more granular control of where the files get installed.
I hope Win8 does a better job, too, as I plan on SSD drives for all my workstations for my C drive.
