I have recently purchased a new computer with 2 drives, a C drive with 128GB memory and a D drive with 1000GB memory. My Adobe has been installed on C drive and I have now run out of memory. Is it possible to move Adobe from C to D drive?
128 GB is really a bit short (I know, my C drive partition has only 150GB)
I think that you could theoretically install the software on the D drive, but before that, try the other solutions:
- in your preferences, set the "scratch disk" to the D drive
- Move your catalog(s) to "custom location" on the D drive from your explorer. Default location: menu Help >> system information. You can move or duplicate the whole catalog folder from the explorer.
- You can move your OneDrive or Dropbox synced folders to D, many tutorials on the Web.
- There are various disk cleanup utilities which are good at cleaning unused apps or non essential Windows updates.
I suppose your 128GB disk is a SSD, I think you should keep PSE there for optimal speed. If you can add some RAM (8 GB at least) that will be good.
You really need a larger C drive. Windows 10 updates will fill up your C drive.
