You mean on your C drive with your operating system? No. You have to have it on a 2nd drive the D drive.

Or do you mean have all the files to run all the games etc on the same 8tb drive, aka self-contained with everything you need? Yes. It will install a few gigs of programs on your C drive too on the initial setup (mostly drivers and graphics settings), but everything you need is on the drive and you don't need a lot of space on your OS C: drive either.

The install puts some files on your main c: drive and after that yes there is still room for the updates. They are always kept small enough to fit on the 8tb drive. Most files needed are already set up on the drive so the install to your main operating system drive is relatively small. You do not do anything like pick an install directory when running the install.
