No. C: is the system drive, but I have all development tools (and most other things) in D:

I did so in the past. Then I had to replace that hard disk and couldn't
clone it, had to copy things. But that disk also contains the \User
directories, so it wasn't trivial. Things got messy and I suppose I forgot.
Anyway, yeah, I agree, it's something the user has to take care of...
As long as they know, or remember. And the git error being silenced
didn't help ;-)
