Changing Local Storage issue

I just upgraded from Lightroom Classic and I've been doing some disk cleaning to try to declutter my workflow. My C: drive is too small to hold the preview files for Lightroom, especially in the quantity that I use it for. When I installed the latest Lightroom, I selected a location on a different drive (F:) which I have plenty more room on.


However, when I launched the new Lightroom and attempted to import the media, it tried to put the photo cache onto my C: drive again. I looked up online and saw that I needed to change my local storage location, and did so by changing "Storage location for the originals:" to my F: drive. It restarted Lightroom but still is giving me an error saying my "C:" drive is full and to changer my local storage setting... Which I just did becuase I knew the "C:" couldn't handle all of the required space... 


Can someone assist me with understanding why Lightroom continues to reference a Drive which it IS NOT installed on and why does changing the local storage setting not put the file location on cached files into the new folder which I dedicated for local storage?
