"Failed to create temporary file..." - Two hard drives. Any solution?

Whenever I run simulations, I sometimes get problems with SolidWorks being able to find directories. Other errors I get are...


"Failed to create temporary file. Please change Simulation work directory."



"Mesh information not available"


"Data not found"


I have an SSD and a standard Hard drive on my computer. The system defaults to trying to save SolidWorks on the SSD, but I tried to change the installation location to the hard drive since it is larger. I'm wondering if this created the problem. I originally had SolidWorks installed on the SSD, and then uninstalled it and put it on the hard drive. (I also have two version of SolidWorks, SW 2016-2017 and SW 2017-2018)
