Why not install in D: ?

Hi

 

I saw on other post that although you can install the heavy stuff on other locations, the creative cloud app itself can only be installed at the same drive as the OS. My old HDD was bought back when solid state HDs were quite small, I have only Windows intalled on it and it is almost full. 

 

"https://community.adobe.com/t5/download-install-discussions/how-do-i-install-creative-cloud-on-diffe...

 

There is a discussion involving workarrounds and etc... but my question is: WHY it is like so? What is the purpose of not allowing the user to choose another drive?

The product I bought and use for a full backup is at http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm
Note that I get NO benefit if you buy the program, I only use it and like what it does
The current version allows restoring to a larger drive and expanding the partition to fit... so you should be able to buy a larger boot drive and clone/expand your existing drive onto the larger drive

 

There may also be other programs that will clone your existing drive and put everything on a larger drive

Some of the files get installed to an OS location and user profiles which is unavoidable.

 

I don't get how you only have Windows on your drive. Even the smallest drives should have some room for applications and storage. Also at some point, that computer might not be powerful enough to continue updating your apps and that may be more of a discussion than the hard drive alone.
