You cannot simply physically move or copy any Adobe application directories from one drive to another. These applications have multiple directories (including some within C:\ProgramData) and Windows registry entries pointing to various components.

 

Conceivably if you wanted to do this, you would need to first uninstall all the applications. Then you would need to modify your preferences in the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop application to point to where you want installation to occur to. And finally, you would need to reinstall all the applications and reset their preferences. But again, some components will remain on the system drive.

 

Generally speaking, if what you are trying to accomplish is to deal with a system disk drive with not enough space, you would be very prudent to take the opportunity to replace that system disk drive with one with much higher capacity, preferably an SSD with at least 512GB of space. Note that if you are running that short of disk space that you can't fit the Adobe applications, it is very likely that you will encounter severe problems at some point during various Windows updates.
