    As @reynardmuldrake previously shared, you can create a symbolic link to fix this issue in the meantime. It can be used for Minecraft Modpack installations as well. Since Twitch wants to FORCE us to install Minecraft to C:\Users\Twitch, I wrote a new script.

    The commands below must be run in an elevated command prompt. You should replace *username* with your own folder name, and make sure you replace any other folder names/drive letters with your own.

    mkdir "C:\Users\*username*\Twitch\Minecraft"
    rmdir "C:\Users\*username*\Twitch\Minecraft"
    mkdir "G:\Games\Twitch\Minecraft"
    mklink /D "C:\Users\*username*\Twitch\Minecraft" "G:\Games\Twitch\Minecraft"

    You can copy and paste those 4 lines and hit enter to run the entire script automatically. "mkdir" will "make a directory" - if it gives you an error, it's likely the directory already exists, so the error can be ignored, and the script should still work.

    Hope this will be helpful to other Minecraft users out there, such as @CloudMixer.
    Shoutout to @reynardmuldrake again for writing the original comment. @shellbbyy, I recommend trying that method! @JC I can confirm it works.
