Hi,

Cannot install Acrobat Pro DC on C drive (small SSD gobbled up by Windows) and Acrobat wont let me choose drive

When I try to install Acrobat Pro DC it exits with error message - not enough free space.

There is no possibility for me to leave up free space on C.

I would like to choose another location fo Acrobat Pro DC - how can this be done?

That response is for Adobe Reader and not Adobe Acrobat.

For Acrobat installation, you can set the base of the install using the preferences in the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application. However, be aware that there will still be considerable content installed on your C: drive in the same way that other applications such as Microsoft Office use that space, typically in the C:\ProgramData and C:\users\ directory structure.

Regrettably, you really might need to consider replacing that small SSD drive with something more reasonable, i.e., nothing less that 256GB or 512GB.

Well if you install using disc image I have a sure answer otherwise I am not quite sure but when you are prompted to enter product key or choose to continue in trial you will have a button next to the install button that is the customize button in which you can choose which features to install and which not and where they must be installed but you will still need about 650-700 mb's of space free on your c drive if you choose to install all the features and all of them on the secondary drive and that is the only one I tried.
