Move FiveM.exe into an empty folder on your E drive and start it, it’ll download all the files automatically.

i’ve done that twice and it doesn’t work, whenever I do that all my application data for fivem goes to the my localappdata which takes space on my C drive rather than on my E drive

Make sure the folder where you start FiveM.exe is completely empty - say, create a new folder on your E drive called FiveM, put the .exe in it and launch it. I did this myself numerous times already.
