Hello everyone. This afternoon i took some time repairing my windows11 system and I cleared my C driver.

My creative cloud was in C but to spare more space I installed all applications in my E driver. Now I installed the creative cloud again , but  seems that it can't find where the applications are though they are still in E.

They show 'install' on those applications .Now I can use the applications normally but... won't it be a problem in the future ? I 'll be grateful a lot if someone can tell me how to fix this.

yes, after changing the path "if the cc desktop app then fails to detect the apps are already installed, install over their current installs."

 

there's some timeliness required.  if you wait too long, you won't be able to install the same version and that means you'll have an orphan older version that even if you manually delete will have files/links on your c drive.

change your cc desktop app preferences to install your apps on your e drive.  if the cc desktop app then fails to detect the apps are already installed, install over their current installs.
