How to move Mac Storage of Rush Files to External Drive?

Overall, I like Rush. However, its files are now 75gig on my Macbook Pro HD, running Sonoma 14.2.1.  

(1) ASKING HOW-TO:  Is there a way to move all of the files that I believe are in  >Icloud drive > Documents > Adobe > Premiere Rush > Managed Media > Assets.  *TO* an external HD and still have Rush access those necessary project files as needed for future editing...   (hopefully without having to reconnect each resource.).  

(2) ASKING A QUESTION TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND:   I already keep the original files on an external drive in a neatly arranged filing system.  When I occasionally change a folder name and have to reconnect an asset,  it works to reconnect to the file on that external and not to anything in the Managed Media>Assets folder.... however it seems as if the multi-gig video files are still copied/stored in that Managed Media>Assets folder.  Why?  

(3) ANOTHER HOW TO QUESTION:  And similarly, from the beginning, is it possible to TELL Rush to store newly created project's assets in that same external HD place?   

(4) ASKING FOR INFORMATION:  And how much of a performance delay might storing assets externally cause my editing process?

This should work, but you likely need to reconnect the media clip-by-clip. That's the painful part

I'll ask a developer to answer the question about the behavior or managed media assets. That one is out of my level of expertise. I don't think there's a way to save a project directly to a custom location. Sorry about that.

 

Let me know if I can help with anything else. Take care.

 

Thanks,
Kevin
