Change Install Location for Applications

With the CC application opened, choose the little gear icon in the upper right corner and then choose Preferences.  In the Preferences screen select Creative Cloud and then look for the Install Location drop down

there's not much space needed for those config files (but there's some).  the main space occupying files you can relocate like you're doing.

How come my libraries (now 54 GB,..and growing)) are on my c-drive.

I realy need to move them because im getting problems with my c-drive.

Its not just installing the apps on an other drive, i already did that!

The files are kept in:  AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Creative Cloud Libraries\LIBS\bla bla bla bla...

..or can i just delete this?

Why is there no solution to this?  Adobe = AI is here, we are aware.  Why such poor support for your customers?  We need a simple solution to move these files off the C drive.  Crazy that it hasn't been addressed yet by the Adobe "team" which I am not sure exists.

adobe has always been haphazard in its file distribution, so that's unlikely to change in he future.  that said, most (but not all) files can be installed off the os drive.

Appdata is a fixed location set my Microsoft. Adobe have to use it for many purposes. Maybe Microsoft allow you to move it to another physical drive. The real problem is totally inadequate internal disks in many machines sold today.
