I'm trying to pare down my boot drive (40 gig Intel SSD), but acrobat installs on c: drive by default. Is there any way to install on a different drive?
What version of Acrobat are you trying to install and which operating system? The majority of Acrobat's components will need to be installed on the boot drive for Windows or Mac OS but there should be some customization options available.
I uninstalled acrobat, so I could re-install on a different drive, When I went to, it tells u where its gonna install (on c drive), but I can't find a way to browse the drives or change the default destination.

I know Acrobat only takes about a hundres Mb or so when installed, but like that old Washington DC adage: a hundred megs here, a hundred megs there, pretty soon you're talking about serious space lol.
Jaxtrauma I am downloading a copy of Acrobat now to test the install UI. I will post back when I have some results.
In general though for your SSD to be most effective you will want to have sufficient space for your OS and Applications. You can then use a higher capacity traditional hard drive to store your documents, videos, music, etc. By running your applications off the traditional drive you are unfortunately loosing a lot of the benefits of utilizing an SSD.
I should have an answer for you on where exactly to adjust the install location in about 10 or 20 minutes.
Yeah I'm saving up for a larger capacity SSD, just using this one to speed up boot times and windows, but it slowed down considerably when I put much more than just windows on it. So I was just looking for ways to put anything else on another larger, slower drive. I really appreciate your geting back to me in such a timely manner over a small matter. Thanks very much!
No prob. Definitely don't want you to lose any sleep over it ha ha. I knew I needed a higher capacity SSD and you confirmed that for me. I'll shoot for the 256 gig size, I've seen them online for around $250. Another company, not Intel's they cost more. Thanks again Jeff.
I downloaded the free reader, no wonder I didn't get that screen, but I'll get Adobe Acrobat X Pro, that solves the whole issue right there. You're a genius! Wow thank you again for all the effort you gave my question. Best customer service guys around.
Sorry, even though I gave the wrong product name (Acrobat instead of Reader) y'all solved it anyway. You guys are awesome, seriously. I prefer Reader over those others for e-books, etc. I'm hitting that link right now! Thanks again!
