Hi Guys,

I am really new and I just wanted to ask the community If I am able to change the storage location before installing the Creative Cloud.

It automatically installs itsself on my SSD (partition C:/) but on that one I dont have enough free space for the other applications...

I am aware that the programs will run not that fast on a normal HDD but thats not so important for me cause am a beginner...

I would really appreciate some help and I am sorry for my grammar! Thanks!

Hi is there an up to date answer to this topic? 

I first installed my Adobe Cloud suite on an external SSD, but it has all gone back over to my C drive, I too have issues with space notifications as the Adobe is 20GB. Can you add a link to where this topic is covered please.

Thx
