Change Netflix Download Location In Windows 10

Netflix saves all downloaded movies and videos to the same drive where the Netflix App is installed by default on your computer.

It essentially means that Netflix Movies and TV Shows will download to your computer’s primary drive (C:).

However, if your computer does not have enough storage space or wants to overload the main drive with Netflix downloads, you can move Netflix downloads to an external drive.

Storage Space Required For Netflix Movie Downloads

The video’s length and quality determine the amount of storage space needed to download a Netflix video.

In general, downloading 60 minutes of standard-definition video requires 1 GB of storage space, while downloading the same length movie in HD format requires 3 GB of storage space.

Furthermore, the storage requirement increases to 7 GB if the same 60-minute video is downloaded in Ultra-HD format.

1. Change Netflix Download Location to External Drive

This method copies the Netflix App and any previously downloaded movies and TV shows from your computer to the new location you specify.

1. Go to Settings then click on the Apps icon.

2. On the Apps screen, in the left pane, tap on Apps & Features. Next, scroll down and click on Netflix in the right-hand pane.

3. Next, tap the Move button and choose Drive, where you want to save the Netflix app and Netflix downloads.
