It's related to this answer.
After run matlab_R2019a_win64.exe and zip file is extracted as "_temp_matlab_R2019a_win64", you can cancel installation from installer.
Open Command Prompt and navigate to the extracted folder (_temp_matlab_R2019a_win64).
You can run setup.exe with -downloadFolder option, so you can change the download folder.
.\setup.exe -downloadFolder "D:\Some\Path"

I too have encountered this problem; however, I tackled it with a different solution (maybe becuase it might be a different problem; but listen in anyway in case it helps you or have the same problem...). Whenever I finished choosing the tools and features I needed from Matlab and clicked the next button on the installer I would be shown a warning that says there is "insufficient space" on the shown filepath on my C drive. Now note that I have already chosen to install Matlab on my D drive which has tons more of space. After looking over the filepath that is shown to have insuffiecent sapce, I noticed that it goes to the temp files on my C dirve. So I changed my temp file location on to my D drive instead (i would recommend watching this video on how to change a temp/tmp file: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQfPSj7yYJw ). After changing my temp file I relaunched the Matlab installer (cancelled the current one) and voila! The "insuffiecient space" prompt was gone and the dowload process began; albeit this time on my rich-in-space D drive.

Download folder ("D:\Some\Path" in my answer) is anywhere you want. The installer creates a folder if it didn't exist.
