I have a desktop set up with and SSD and an HDD


I initially wanted to have my OS just installed on the SSD but then whe I got Creative Cloud it automatically installed it there too. Now i have to space on my SSD and i can't use any of the programs.


I need Creative Cloud to be installed in the HDD that is inside of my desktop computer. Is this possible.?

Or am i gonna have to get a bigger SSD so I can re-install windows and Adobe creative suite.

    The best option would be to get a bigger SSD.  As soon as you utilize a standard hard drive to run the applications you loose most of the advantages of having an SSD.


    You can customize the installation location though within the Preferences settings in the Adobe Application Manager.  You will want to uninstall the application using the proper method for whichever operating system you are using.  Which operating system do you have installed btw? 


    Once you have removed the software you can reinstall and the preferences set in the Adobe Application Manager will then be utilized.  Please also be aware that temp files as well as shared components will always need to be installed on the drive which contains the operating system installation.

    No need to deactivate.  Just run the uninstaller through the Programs & Features control panel.
