Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

I would like to answer your question.

If it's already installed then you can't map the location to other drive.

If installing first time then it provides an option to install on custom location. However in that case few directories will be installed on C drive and it's hard coded & can't be change.

Could you please specify what exactly you want to achieve?
