Hello people, I have been trying to get help with no success of course through Adobe. My PC is full on my drive C. I have removed all adobe product and try to reinstall them on my bigger drive D. Still goes to C. I have changed the setting on my pc so that all news apps go to D, but no luck. Any ideas? Thank you

Hi @Oliveman, I've moved your question from Using the Community (forums) to Download & Install. From Preferences in CC desktop app, you may change the default installation drive but you still need sufficient empty HD space on your primary drive to download, unpack and install software.  Without it, you won't get far.  Please ensure your computer meets or exceeds the minimum system requirements to run Creative Cloud + OS + all other apps you use. Check each one.  - https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/system-requirements.html...

Fantastic.

Yes I found the option.
So now I will delete all apps except the creative cloud desktop and
reinstall in D.Is that right?
My drive D is very big and has nothing on it.
Thank you

Yes, you're right. You have to deinstall the apps on drive C and reinstall on drive D.

But remember, as Nancy wrote you need already sufficient free disk space on drive C.

Ok, great.

I have enough room on C once the photo apps are moved.

Thank you so much.
