Well, the more you know, eh?
-Edit- I now remember the primary reason for why I didn't have Vortex on C; because all my games etc. are installed on G, and Vortex said that it should be on the same HD, I installed it on G as well. And since it didn't occur to me that it'd delete mods in its own directory, I set it to download and keep the mods there, simply to reduce the clutter.
I'm sure there's a perfectly valid, technical reason for why it cleans itself in such a way when updating, but I'm not a programmer and can't imagine what that reason might be.
