  1. Is it possible to change the Windows location for the shared folder in bluestacks ?
    My C: drive is almost full. I would like to use an external drive instead.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    1. Wally, there’s no straightforward way of doing that. Though, you could Backup all your BlueStacks data from the settings menu, and uninstall and reinstall Bluestacks in the new location. After the new install, restore your data.
