    Myself and two other analysts in my group use ShareGate. We all experience the following. When upgrading and/or installing from scratch, the ShareGet applications gets installed in %localappdata% but DOZENS of files get dumped into the C:\ folder and left there. I'm assuming the installer unzips into c:\ and then does not or cannot remove the files after the install is complete.

    We're currently migrating a large amount of data. Unfortunately, since Sharegate stores this on the C drive we're running the risk of the disk running out of space (we're currently at 98% utilisation!). The option to move this to another disk would be very useful.

    It would be very helpful to allow sharing of the task - report results - such that tasks can be delegated to a team when a large farm is being reported upon

    To allow users to be able to store/move ShareGate related local files such as local cache, applicationlogs etc, to a non-system drive.

    In some cases, particularly on servers, the c:\ drive doesn't have much space. I'd like to be able to move the Sharegate folder under AppData somewhere else.

    currently the applications logs are always saved in the userprofile (ie. C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Sharegate\ApplicationLogs, even if you install ShareGate on another disk (d: for example). However when you try to migrate a huge bach of users with big homefolders to OneDrive, the Application log directory is growing, so the c: drive of the server with ShareAGte runs full. We need a way to store the application logs on a different disk, so we can unload the c:\drive.

    Offer to automatically upload app logs to a SharePoint library for backup purposes. Right now they're all kept on the system drive of the computer on which they run, not a safe place for them if my computer dies.
